Sorry, lack of clarity because of failing neurons.
What I meant to say was "1024 CIDRable allocations".
Or simply "allocations".
The point is that we will guarantee that our allocation policy will
create no more than 1024 allocations per /8 and therefore not
necessitate by itself more routes than that. Currently our allocation
sizes are /19 - /16. If you think about it a little you will see that
it is easy to achieve.
And just in case: Yes the minimum allocation is /19 irrespective
of the number of hosts covered. Note: allocation != assignment.
