The 12/8 address space is fully allocated out, I believe entirely to  
customers. Do the math. 35,000,000 residential customers (plus) on DSL and  
FTTx (many with a /29, /27, or larger assigned), plus very many managed  
services customers with full /24s and even /16s. It's no wonder they're  
hungry for IP space. Their enormous customer base is hungry for it.
