Since deployment seems to be based initially upon virtual
topologies that are disjoint from the underlying IPv4
topology (i.e., using tunnels), surely anyone who is open
to allowing other sites to connect to their virtual
topology should be eligible for address space?
Yes, but that doesn't *necessarily* mean a prefix short enough
to be in the (hopefully small) default free table. If someone
is setting up a regional virtual topology they begin to look
like a metro exchange and something longer than a /29 TLA
prefix might be OK. But I tend to agree with Sean.
