Where did I say that Lucent was part of DoD? ;-) I said there were a total 
of four announcements where the first /16 was announced as part of a larger 
CIDR block, but not listed as being allocated to anyone...

It seems to me that in these 4 cases the organisations concerned simply 
decided that CIDRisation meant that the first /16 was theirs...
