NAT?!?  You are obviously not understanding the point I was attempting
to make.

The point was that companies may not need more then a /24 to put their
entire site on, yet may be pushed to say they have more in order to
acquire a /20 from ARIN, just to be globally visable.

If you were in a position where you did NOT have your own previously allocated
swamp/b/a space, you wanted to multihome to a few different providers
in such a way that you were globally reachable no matter who went offline
and you only needed a /24 or less, what would you do?
