That's the original discussion point. However, there's a little throwaway comment in one of Joao's subsequent emails in which he says... "No, NASA should probably not return their IPv4 space. With IPv6 you can do it right, so why not do it right?". To me, that implies that you can force an organisation like NASA to return *all* their v6 space and renumber in this kind of situation. > Sounds surprisingly reasonable to me. For the initial discussion point, yes. For the subsequent point, above, absolutely not.
