	Roeland, what are you talking about?

	DS1 costs are by far the lowest they have been in years, 
-particularly- in California.  Try living in Michigan or Illinois

	Randy's point is that basement resellers of dedicated services
in particular are typically reselling to enough people that they have
larger address-space needs than a /24 and can qualify for and get their
own space.

	The legitimate use of a microallocation is a small, but highly
trafficed service that badly needs to be multihomed -- remember we
started this thread with a conversation about eBay and CNN.

	This is not a small provider catch all.
