	hum... so what happens if i chose to delegated /56's to my
	customers?  does that invalidate my LIR status 'cause i'm  not
	toeing the /48 line?

	presuming of course i have LIR status along w/ the /32 that has ben
	delegated to me.

	to borrow a line, "some days your the IANA, some days your the endnode"
