Just to clarify, my point was rather that PI *in itself* isn't evil. There's in my experience a great misconception of this in the region. Whether an address block is a PI assignment or a PA allocation, is really irrelevant to the amount of routes it generates (provided allocations are aggregated :). So saying that it's better to give people a PA allocation than a PI assignment (whether they have customers or not) and that this will address the problems with PI and an ever-growing routing table is not correct. I'm not argueing in any way for or against PI, I am just trying to clarify the terminology. :) I do however understand your point about smaller organisations not qualifying for an allocation, and that's of course a separate issue.
