And, because of the way you get CIDR allocations in Europe (and probably
everywhere else now)
  Join RIPE
  Apply for space for your own network
  This gets allocated from the beginning of a new /19 CIDR block
  Build NOC and 1st POP
  Then start applying-for/allocating customer address space

I would imagine a very large proportion of "newer" ISPs have critical stuff
in the 1st /24 of their 1st allocation ...

I know from the time that I worked at RIPE, that there were at least some
'weird' people that asked if we/they could start assigning from the top
of the /19 ..., and we accepted that. May be they were right after all ;-),
