Good point...   Look at the introduction of the 888 prefix in the US.  The
FCC is still trying to figure about what to do about all of the companies
that want their "vanity" 800 numbers replicated into the 888 numbering
space.  What's the point of making the name (or number, in the case of 888)
space bigger if it's just going to be filled up with copies of what's out
there already?
