Title: Reclassification of NON-PORTABLE address space?

Are you referring to space you got directly from ARIN?   If so, it is by definition portable.   If it is space from a provider it belongs to the provider, not you and is thus not portable.

Subject: Reclassification of NON-PORTABLE address space?



   Anyone know if there is a precedent for reclassifying blocks of non-portable address space to portable? I didn't see anything in ARIN archives (maybe I didn't look hard enough). Bribery? Threats? Acquisition of the assignor by the assignee?

   If such a reclassification were simple, I expect that the process would be heavily abused by smaller networks that would like to avoid renumbering.
