You have a clever hack to provide a private path between consenting adults. The numbers assigned at exchange points are done by mutual consent. If you don't like the numbers, then you don't have to attach, or you can get everyone else at a specific exchange to agree to change them. If the exchange point wants another entity to manage the address mapping, that is possible as well. A brief history. The RA had reserved a block of addresses for use at the Sprint NAP. Sprintlink had done the same. The Sprintlink block was/is the block in use. The RA was managing the domain naming for a while and then Sprintlink asked to manage the space. The zones were transfered promptly and without hassle. Now if I had refused to transfer the zones, then you might have a valid complaint. The RA is not "pirating" anything here. -- --bill
