Don't forget the enterprises that number themselves out of 'unallocated'
space :) which might very well be the space that was just recently
released.

It's a really fun conversation when your customer (or some enterprise)
realizes that RFC1918 is there for a reason, and that their 10k person
network is going to need a really complicated renumber out of the
72.x.x.x/8 and into 10.x.x.x :(

Suffice it to say that there are a myriad of reasons these new allocations
could seem 'broken' to folks. Testing real-world applications seems like a
reasonable first step. Having an org (cymru in this case) able to provide
http/icmp targets on these prior to RIR allocations going bananas seems
like that first step. Those that wish to test can, those that don't
don't... simple?
