So is there a fine line between "selling"/"renting" the space to B and
providing 1Mbit of bandwidth over a GRE tunnel to B and allowing them to
announce the space via any other transit provider? I'm just curious what the
difference is (besides a bit of technical work with the latter). It will be
interesting to see what happens as the last of the IPv4 space is exhausted.
