In the 184.108.40.206 case this is not a problem politically or otherwise and the DMZ is an ebone net so not problem but the interconnect network is still an interesting one. However, there are only a few cases in the world where this is an issue. The GIX net is the most interesting of course. Basically, a decision has to be made as to who announces it. --Tony.
