Same here. For large chunks of class C's, we send the end site directly
to the NIC.

Its just hard convincing the end sites the 'merits' of a chunk of class
C addresses for them-- too many are just too caught up in the 'prestige'
involved in getting a class B network... if only someone could tell all
those 'consultants' advising these end sites to get class B's... ;-)
