Re: Policy Statement on Address Space Allocations

All this discussion seems to be about work arounds for the real
problem.  Namely, that the current hardware/software/protocols
can't handle what is actually a small number of routes.

Restricting announcements of new routes should be one of the last
things considered.  

Here is one - for whatever reasons, we have a provider who can't seem 
to correctly announce an aggregate and instead, announces several 
specifics.  Nobody says anything about this inefficiency - not to us or 
to them.  Some automated process watching for things like this and
sending an advisory email might help quite a bit.
