Not easily observable means some ip blocks maybe used but
are not adverised in public BGP. This is a bit of an
issue with certain part of US Gov.

This is what I was getting at, but you've given an upper
bound (21%) and I'm positive it's not even close to that.
Still, it reduces the 21% to a amaller number.
