Operational Issues with 69.0.0.0/8...

IMHO - The RIRs are doing their part. They announce to the operations
aliases their intention to allocate a new block before they start doing
it. People like me (with the ingress-prefix-template), Rob Thomas (with
the bogon template), and Steve Gill (with the Junos flavor of the
ingress-prefix-template) start tweaking our templates and post them to
the community.

After that, it would be up to each operations team to execute within
their own network.

    Perhaps not, but an X month period after the inital allocation to
the
RIR where they don't assign out of that pool might be wise. Perhaps
e-mails
can be sent to the registered contacts of existing IP space upon initial
allocation, on the first of each month, and then on the last day of the
hold.

    I know that I am sometimes a bit too busy to take care of something
like
that at the very instant I get the e-mail, and that it can fall to the
wayside. Many times a reminder e-mail has come at a moment where I was
able
do to something about it.
