If NSF were to waive the NSFNET Backbone Service AUP **for the sole 
purpose of assisting providers in effective CIDRization/aggregation to 
avoid Internet collapse**, would that be of any help?

I have alerted the NSF Counsel to this possibility, and they are of 
course concerned that everyone will cancel their current commercial 
contracts, switch their traffic to NSFNET, and hurl all the private 
providers into bankruptcy.

I should welcome your comments; if you support the idea (the waiver, not
hurtling into ruin), I may also enlist your help convincing Counsel and
the IG.
