Hi folks,

Are there any policies set by internet registries and/or transit
providers today that prohibits organizations from using a Partially
used IP Block allocated in one region say AP through APNIC to be
comissioned and Propagated in another region such as EMEA serviced by

Obv, the best approach would be to acquire a new Block in the 2nd
region through its own registry, but sometimes due to strict
prvisioning timelines, legal delays in getting the necessary approvals
involved etc make this option less attractive. From an IPV4 space
depletion perspective as well, it might be feasible if organizations
having a large block in one region could split it amongst multiple
regions to prevent Wastage.

Any thoughts/expereinces and feedback would be appreciated.
