Re: BGP Question - how do work around pigheaded ISPs

WIBNI everyone who announced subnets of an allocated-in-pre-CIDR-times 
prefix would have to justify, under the usual slow-start rules, the
use of any and all of those chunks that exceed a typical initial
allocation from a favourite registry (APNIC, ARIN, RIPE)?

WIBNI these member-funded registries were instructed by their
members that, in order to postpone the day when the vast majority
of paying members have to upgrade their routers because of an
increase in the number of globally-heard prefixes and/or change
swathes of the parts of the Internet they offer service to 
from classical IPv4 because of address consumption, the registries
should monitor the address utilization of pre-CIDR allocations
AS IF THEY HAD BEEN ALLOCATED UNDER TODAY'S RULES, and notify
the entire membership when pre-CIDR allocations are clearly non-conforming
in a way that inflates (even just a little) the size of the global
routing tables or the overall visible address consumption.

Allocations Too!" -- whimsical spam to all real-world routing folks.
