Given our failure rate with registries of AS numbers, IP address blocks, and
routing table entries, and the fact we have no special reason to believe that
we'll be able to sprinkle Magic ULA Dust all over it and avoid all the failure
modes of registries, we're probably better off just randomly generating them
and just hope for no collisions.
