Indeed.  The view from here is that one of the participants at the
AADS exchange agreed to sign the acceptable use paperwork, which was
the gist of the problem I had with the current situation.  That taken
care of, the prefix is good for use at the AADS 
exchange.  This does not preclude AADS from implementing a renumbering
plan for its clients.  It is then up to the clients to determine which/
how many prefixes they intend to use.

Also note.  There is -NOT- payment for address space. There are costs
associated with doing delegation and those costs have to be recovered
