Since you have gone through the process before. It would be nice 
(especially concerning the DoD networks) if you could ask if they plan 
to keep them (not monetize) and if you could make such a statement publicly.

I mention this, as DoD is most common bogons utilized by people who need 
to steal IP addressing. Locking in a statement that there is no 
intention to ever sell, transfer, or return those blocks would ease 
possible concerns on using them.

As a side effect, it also kills any need of any proposals in various 
institutions to reserve virgin space for utilization of LSN and such.
