I disagree, this is just the same kind of "ancient uptodate information" which makes people insist they get a C class worth of addresses for their firewall. But it would help of course, if somebody would write a document and stick it on the RIPE webserver saying "this is why you have to run http 1.1" and another one saying "this is why you only get the addresses you can prove you need" which ISPs could point such customers at to take the air out of the "...or somebody else will get my business!" argument. -- Poul-Henning Kamp FreeBSD coreteam member phk at FreeBSD.ORG "Real hackers run -current on their laptop."
