Currently, the 800 space is filling up and they're considering using
another 3 digit area-code (hadn't heard on what they'd finally decided on) 
for toll-free calls.  The curious thing is that if you have a vanity number
in 800, there's some motivation to get the same vanity number under the new
area code.  Doesn't help the {un}clogging of 800 at all... maybe the
IANA would be willing to sell vanity IPv6 addresses :-).
