Yes, and now that we know enough publically available details, it's time as a community to assist in moving all NANOG ISPs from Level3 to Cogent without renumbering.
I guess a significant part of the single-homed networks behind Level (3) would be in PA space owned by them, and thus will find the initial step towards multihoming very hard to take (renumbering into PI or their own PA space).
It's unlikely that they have an AS when not already multihomed. If everybody with a /24 got an AS, we'd run out quickly. Bad policy. However, we should assist everybody without an AS and at least /24 to move to Cogent without renumbering. That means the blocks should be reassigned. That requires registry assistance. To avoid routing table explosion, we probably need to identify adjacent blocks and encourage them to move to Cogent, too. -- William Allen Simpson Key fingerprint = 17 40 5E 67 15 6F 31 26 DD 0D B9 9B 6A 15 2C 32
