> Yes.  If you want PI space, you have to start off with PA space, utilize it, and then apply for PI space and an AS #, with contracts demonstrating your intention to multihome.  Then, you have to *migrate* off the PA space and surrender it back to the 'owner'.  You cannot get further PI allocations until you've done this.
