ARIN supports the idea of doing reachability testing on new /8 blocks issued

Once more details have been worked out, we will notify the community.

a bit more coffee made me realize that what might best occur would be for

put up a pingable for that space and announce it on the lists so we can all
test BEFORE someone uses space from that block.
