If a single-homed network moves from L3 to Cogent, how would they benefit? Would they not still be cut off from a significant percentage of the Internet?

Is it reasonable to think that numerous /24's from L3's IP space could be reassigned elsewhere without causing significant trouble for L3 and others? Even if it could work, what would be the justification for taking L3's property?
