number of unaggregated class C's in swamp?
>> And that's where folks _deserve_ a break, since they didn't have CIDR Well... why not focus on sites that don't deserve a break? How many /24 from 204 and 205 are announced? Probably not many so I could argue that it would be good to make them renumber. It's not like we're shaking up the whole world. Maybe if the core routers are going to start filtering it should be on a schedule like this: Announce now that by Oct 1, 1996 no individual /24 will be routed. Filter 204/24 and 205/24 on Oct 31, 1995 Filter 202/24 and 203/24 on Nov 30, 1995 etc. until, by Oct 1, 1996, all /24 are filtered. At the same time announce that no new /N prefixes will be accepted by the IRR (and make it so). This will encourage renumbering into larger blocks. Pick N to be a reasonable number based on various registries allocation policies. Regardless of any filtering, the IRR should stop taking any new /24 prefixes so that old 198.* nets (and others) don't creep in before their cutoff date comes up. -mark
