% i think the important points for ietf@ to know about are (a) that this
% is an open issue, (b) that it's generally agreed that all the RIR's ought
% to have the same rules regarding microallocations, and (c) exactly where
% (as in what working group or mailing list or smoke filled room) the
% discussion is being held. for example, bill says above that "/35 routes
% are being discouraged" and that's probably true but "by whom?" and "where?"
By ISPs, in conjunction w/ IETF and RIRs. Check the allocation
policies. I'll agree that (a) is valid, there is little that
is cast in stone. (b) on the other hand, has any number of
legal implications... collusion, monopolies, etc. As for (c),
check the RIR working groups and mailing lists, the V6OPS wg of the
IETF and the IPv6 protocol wg.
Opinions expressed may not even be mine by the time you read them, and
certainly don't reflect those of any other entity (legal or otherwise).
