you might want to ensure that all the hardware vendors who design/build hardware based on RFC's will respect your administrative choice to delegate this /24 prefix. I say this with the battlescars that came from getting venders to rebuild their ASICs and replace all their fielded hardware when we deployed CIDR. CIDR, as a technology, impacted everyone, and was the -ONLY- reason vendors made the change. It took three years to get hardware updated. I doubt vendors will go through the same multimillion $CURRENCY change for a single /24. As a testcase, I recommend that APNIC delegate this prefix to a site that provides critical services to APNIC and then test your reachability to said service -BEFORE- to inflict the same pain on one of your members. % % % Hi Geoff, % % Thank you for your email but since RFC3300 has specifically % indicates that this /24 reservation will subject for future % allocation.
