And for the definitive answer on this block, the official response is: and

This is astounding. Are we really to believe that the UK Defense folks are using 60% of a /8 - about 10,066,000 addresses?

Even if every sub-allocation within that 60% were only 50% utilized, that would be over 5,000,000 addresses.

Internally Allocated != used

And someone should further alert him that they do not "own" these addresses.
