Exactly my point!!! We don't want IANA to be repeating now same thing 
as was done early in the internet with assignments of legacy /8 and /16s.

P.S. For IPv4 I've been working on additional graphical statistics info
that lists general amount of space assigned to ISPs/organizations on per 
country basis and separates it all based on assignments done in what I 
consider to be 3 main IR assignment periods (legacy iana direct - up to 
around 1993/1994, early-IR - up to 1997/1998 and modern RIRs after that). 
Additionally there would be two sepratepages, one that includes IANA /8 
direct assignments (which I must say completely changes the picture) 
and one that does not include that. If I have time I might actually finish 
this over the weekend.
