As one of the grim-reapers of address space I'd like to point out a change
that should get placed into Phils RFC and an offer to the nanog community.

[email protected]  is likely to be moot real soon now and
Kims response that this should change to [email protected] is
a viable replacement is almost ok.  However I'd point out that 
under the terms of the InterNic award, they were the NIC of first and
last resort.  I don't beleive this is the case with ARIN.

Two, and perhaps of interest to members of this list,
I'm collecting prefixes again for reclaimation.  I've done the traditional
/8 space twice and once.   Now I'm willing to 
track any/all prefixes that you beleive should be returned.
I've already got a list of traditional /16s that folks think should
be returned and some /24s as well.   I'll even do this for
small blocks as well.
