Are you advocating to use real operational nets as
guinea pigs :-)? I feel, at least in this stage which
we know the exsitence of CIDR-traffic-black-holing-ASs,
Eric-jan's approach is a more appropraite one.
We seem to already have a more than adequate supply of volunteers to be
guinea pigs, so I see no reason not to procede with testing on live network
There are real sites out there that are starting to suffer from huge routing
tables - let's not delay CIDR deployment any more than necessary.
