	If you are build in the US you will presumable connecting
	it the US so you should be getting the space from ARIN.
	This will help with address allocations aligned with the
	geography.  I can well seen US sites filtering all APNIC
	allocations and using a covering prefix to reach APNIC sites
	as one way to handle route growth.
