This is the case now...upstream providers are the "big nabobs"...
they do not incur the costs of renumbering, they do not get concerned
when they make a bid to a customer, they have the resources
to deliver. They may not have paid for these resources but they
have them...just check the records...

@ I do not know how would NOC go between this _scilla_ and _charibda_, but 
@ it's one of this important questions the internet's future depends of.

unfortunately, the solutions being proposed favor the
