As part of the educational effort you might want to add information about
IPng (IPv6) as well as RFC 1918...this may help to give people hope...
also, you might want to develop some incentive programs for turning
in IP Addresses..."awards", press, etc...along this line I think that
there should be some "peer pressure" approaches added to the process...
do publicly held companies want to be exposed as "wasting" IP addresses..??
this might be worse than "acid rain" or "water pollution"...
