Sigh.

Already you're requiring us to use

ip galazy-subnet-zero
ip stargate-subnet-zero

>8 Galaxy Registries

>Weighted Sum using double weights downstream

>Percentage Calculations
>8/3592 = .002227
>512/3592 = .142538
>1024/3592 = .285077
>2048/3592 = .570155

>Revenue Percentages to Various Registries
>	57.0155% to Island Registry
>	28.5077% to Continental Registry
>	14.2538% to Stargate Registry
>	00.2227% to Galaxy Registry

>======== EXAMPLE - Based on Lease Rate of \$2 per IP Address per Year

>Typical Class C scenario
>	256 IP address x \$2 - \$512/year Gross Revenue from Customer

>	\$512 x 57.0155% = \$291.919360 to Island Registry
>	\$512 x 28.5077% = \$145.959424 to Continental Registry
>	\$512 x 14.2538% = \$41.609601 to Stargate Registry
>	\$512 x 00.2227% = \$1.14 to Galaxy Registry

>Theoretical Total Potential Gross Revenues

>Island Registries handle /16 allocations (16 bit address space to manage)
>\$291.92 x 256 = \$74,731.36 Gross Revenue for Island Registry

>Continental Registries handle /8 allocations (24 bit address space to manage)
>\$145.96 x 65,536 = \$9,565,634.56 Gross Revenue for Continental Registry

>Stargate Registries handle /0 allocations (32 bit address16 space to manage)
>\$41.61 x 16,777,216 = \$698,099,957.76 Gross Revenue to Stargate Registry

>Galaxy Registries handle /-8 allocations (40 bit address space to manage)
>\$1.14 x 4,294,967,296 = \$4,896,262,717.44 Gross Revenue to Galaxy Registry
