  Yes I am aware of that.  But this should and seems to need a change.  That is
another
issue however.

  Yes I found that several weeks ago.  This is a departure form how the
structure should work however.

  This would depend on where those IP addresses were requested from.  Nothing
really strange or out of line here though.  This is a problem that started about
two years ago with the IANA and its delegation decisions.  It has not worked
well as we all know.  In fact it has not served the areas of the globe as it
was supposed to do to the extent it should and still could do.  Much of this
is also due to a hoarding of IP blocks by large telco's that are not currently
not used
and are supposed to be returned to the Pool.
