Thus spake John Fraizer
OK. How about I re-word this a bit and see how it goes:
>I think this misses the point. ARIN doesn't require or want you to SWIP
>your /30 and /32 allocations. A network that small just doesn't require
>that level of public contact visibility.
"I think this misses the point. ARIN doesn't require or want you to SWIP
your /30 and /32 allocations.
First sentence wasn't in dispute of course.
An _address_allocation_ that small just doesn't
require that level of public contact visibility."
Here I disagree. As I (and others have pointed out) there are people
with /32's that have just as much administrative control over their IP
"space" as someone with a /25 might have. I have *several* customers,
and we're not all that big of an ISP, that have *full* administrative
control over their IP space with the one exception of reverse lookups.
Now, can we all agree that /30's and /32's are small allocations in the
grand scheme of it all and that the size or the organizations/networks that
use addresses in those allocations can not be accurately determined by the
size of the allocation alone? Good.
I do definitely agree with this.
