As one of the grim-reapers of address space I'd like to point out a change
that should get placed into Phils RFC and an offer to the nanog community.

hostmaster at  is likely to be moot real soon now and
Kims response that this should change to hostmaster at is
a viable replacement is almost ok.  However I'd point out that 
under the terms of the InterNic award, they were the NIC of first and
last resort.  I don't beleive this is the case with ARIN.

Two, and perhaps of interest to members of this list,
I'm collecting prefixes again for reclaimation.  I've done the traditional
/8 space twice and once.   Now I'm willing to 
track any/all prefixes that you beleive should be returned.
I've already got a list of traditional /16s that folks think should
be returned and some /24s as well.   I'll even do this for
small blocks as well.
