+1. Which is what made me look at cost and benefits. I saw Dave Farmer
quoted older RFC's. This isn't bootp or dhcp and I tend to doubt that the
IETF had this type of use in mind at that time. Non-connected is a soft
term for NOT connected and NOT providing internet service "ISP" to the
address block user. There is little dispute over the definition of ISP IMHO.
However it does NOT mean the numbers are not connected to the Internet,

That removal makes me wonder about public safety implications too. (and
below supports that)
