Policy Statement on Address Space Allocations

I can't speak for Matthew, but many smallish ISPs have legacy /24
allocations from using Livingston Portmasters and IRXes before they
could do CIDR (I *think* they solved that problem, but I don't know
for sure).


I think the problem was with variable-sized subnets within a /24, not
with subnetting at all, but I could be wrong.


The problem with Livingstons is not that you cannot subnet, but that you
cannot variably subnet as noted by Avi above.

length subnetting)
