RE: Allocation of IP Addresses

How much attention is paid to how blocks are being used...???

Why doesn't the Internic require that Class A delegates, use those
addresses rather than addresses from other parts of the spectrum...???

For example, why are name servers allowed in 192 and shown below...???
It would be easy for the Internic to have a policy that does not allow the following...


$ whois
AT&T Bell Laboratories (NET-ATT)
   6200 East Broad Street
   Columbus, OH 43213

   Netname: ATT

Should companies be given recognition for "Internet Ecology" efforts...???
