Geoff,
Thanks for the study and report.

Another issue which should be addressed before allocating these 
addresses, is to what extent they are not accepted by networks, either 
due to bogon filters, as Roland said, or because they are being used 
internally.

Could someone try to connect to some web/e-mail/whatever servers from a 
properly advertised 1.x.y.z address and see to what extent it works?

Regards,

Gihan
