Re: /8 end user assignment?

Justin: I would be interested in understanding why you feel this to
be the case (not that I'm disagreeing with you, rather I'm actually
curious). In theory, justification for a /8 is no more impossible
than justification for a /19. Of course, justifying a /8 will
require proportionally more information than for a /19, but I
wouldn't imagine this would be impossible.
If you can justify a /8, ARIN will allocate one to you (not that
I speak for ARIN or anything, but that's how things work).
Presumably Softbank BB justified the /8 APNIC allocated to them.I don't know about APNIC, but ARIN's rules are generally
structured to make justification of a /8 all but impossible.
I suspect this is actually a typo or misreading of some sort.
I don't believe it is.
The business of the rir's is providing ip addresses to their
members. if withholding the remaining address space became more
important than supporting the needs of the community of interest,
then they've obviously failed their membership.
Yes. More to the point, given ARIN's policies, like the other RIRs,
are defined in open public policy meetings, it would indicate either
the community of interest desired the policies to be that way or the
ARIN staff had run amok. I do not believe either to be the case.
