<http://www.arin.net/reference/micro_allocations.html> explains what's going
on with that /48. <http://www.root-servers.org/> shows some other /48's. if
the RIR community wants "critical infrastructure" to use a /48, then f-root's
operator will comply. if the RIR community changes its mind, then f-root's
operator will comply with that, too.
