Given the fact that those address blocks were distributed before the RIR and NIR / LIR structure was devised, those blocks are _administratively_ PI, or maybe "unspecified" which I consider equivalent (much like the very early LIR blocks :-) Technically, and wirth regard to services rendered by LIRs and RIRs to the holders of those blocks, I'd venture to guess that they should be offered a chance to "opt-in" to an existing LIR or ISP environment. > Secondly, who will provide reverse delegation and how can users of these > blocks affect reverse delegation changes?

Actually this is one of the aspects that I would have liked to tackle in the ERX-TF, unfortunately it looks like I might be too late to have those ideas discussed and considered, due to overload on my end for a while. One of the things we should have learned from the ASN relocation is that those parties are not in touch with the most recent administartive procedures imposed by the RIR (and why should they?), and they simply get mixed up when they suddenly receive messages from the NCC :-( Wilfried.
