sooner or later we will have to kill off the /24's, which make up 70% of
the routing table but offer way less than 10% of the total reachable
destinations.  perhaps now that address ownership has been put to bed,
the gang of big providers can agree on a date after which they will all
stop listening to or exporting any prefixes longer than /23?  THAT would
be the incentive the industry needs to look at private addressing and
aggressive renumbering.  who's willing to risk collusion lawsuits and
lost customers?  step right up and sign the register please.
