Re: Internic address allocation policy

I believe that people are indeed already describing what they
intend to do with them and how they will impliment things efficiently.
The problem appears to be that that isn't enough.

Taking a relatively small chunk of the remaining address space
(say, 210.*.*.*) gives us 64k addresses to hand out in convenient
chunks and leaves the vast majority of class C space open for whatever
long term solution we come up with.  It's not like we're going to run
out of C's soon, far from it last time I looked.   That would be
1/32 of the class C space if I remember where the top end is correctly.
Class C space is nearly empty right now.  We can afford to use that
in a quick fix.
