Those organizations will find ways to buy themselves years even without 240/4.

They caused a resource that was never *planned* for release to, in fact,
not be released.  240/4 has been in "reserved" ever since rfc790 in 1981.
And the IPV6 RFCs have been out for a decade as well, so it isn't like they
haven't had years to plan.

But hey, the SCO lawsuit is still alive too (if on life support after it was
stayed by their filing Chapter 11 to escape from their own lawsuits), so what
do I know?  Maybe there's an actual chance that would fly.
