Some aren't multihomed, but they use larger than /20 of v4 space and so 
still qualify. Others are smaller and multihomed and with my permission 
(since I configured the BGP for them), use my ASN and routing tricks. 
Since they have grown this way, they often have no desires to renumber, 
and most have no desire to even bother with an ASN. However, given the 
price of an ASN vs price of an ASN and ISP v6  /32; I know exactly which 
they'll choose. They'll let me pay the higher membership fees, and just 
get space from me.
