      Thanks for bringing that up... we are having a meeting here this Saturday
      to jumpstart the formation of the PH-NIC.  We want to tackle the issue
      of IP space, though the "D" word is really a much more controversial topic. :)
      What are the requirements such that a NIC can get a /16 that will subdivide
      this into 8 /19s for its members?  We currently have 203.176/19;
      can we get 203.176/16 for the PH-NIC, since it is apparently not yet
      If this is not possible, and assuming that the entire NIC gets a /19 to 
      start with, won't we have a problem with routability (of course the APNIC
      disclaimer that assigned networks have no routability guarantees applies).
