I was thinking the same thing.  I know of many installations where 1/8 has  
been used internally.  Technically, they're mostly all "mainframe"  
installations that are never supposed to be connected to the internet, but  
they're accessed by machines that are. (that are already using private  
IPv4 space.)

But it's not all bad.  It's assigned to APNIC, so a lot of people will  
gladly continue blocking it.
