I am fully opposed to any proposal that allows ARIN to set the expectation
that anything longer than a /24 will be reachable.

It is the long standing practice that such a small allocation is provided
by the upstream from an aggregate block.

I will not be updating my prefix list filters and expanding my RIB if this
passes.  Those RIB spots are for ipv6, not another attempt at cgn / ipv4
life support.
