And indeed the latest APNIC stats file shows that they have made assignments from their new /8s, presumably for this purpose:

apnic	AP	ipv4	1.0.0.0	256	20100122	assigned
apnic	AP	ipv4	1.1.1.0	256	20100122	assigned
apnic	AP	ipv4	1.2.3.0	256	20100122	assigned
apnic	AP	ipv4	1.50.0.0	1024	20100122	allocated
apnic	AP	ipv4	1.255.0.0	65536	20100122	allocated
apnic	AP	ipv4	27.0.0.0	256	20100122	assigned
apnic	AP	ipv4	27.50.0.0	1024	20100122	allocated
apnic	AP	ipv4	27.255.0.0	65536	20100122	allocated
