I agree, but unfortunately they have lobbying power.

Joe, this is wishful thinking but the reality is that there actually is such thing. If one was to count the number of operators that have the need for bigger space then RFC1918 and that squats DoD space, one would probably find that it would be faster to count the ones who don't do it.

I'm not saying it's legal or good, I don't approve, but it is there.
