Just for the record: The RIPE NCC is charging for registration services
for quite some time now. We do not charge for addresses, but for the 
service. The charges are annual subscritions per local registry dependent
on a self-determined size of the registry. For details see

This has indeed worked to help aggregation as newly starting garages
tend to obtain address space from their provider rather than subscribe
to the RIPE NCC's registry services.

193/8 minimum allocation is /19
194/8 minimum allocation is /19
