This is part of an effort we've been making to tidy things up and
make the whois data easier for software to interpret. We have
registered allocations surrounding the space we have available in
there for PI assignments.

This word should make 195/8 fully allocated. However, we can't
guarantee that it will stay this way. If people return address
space within 195/8 to us we would "sin bin" it for a while and then
feel free to issue it.

193/8 and 194/7. We publish the smallest sizes we issue for each /8
(and /23) range in http://www.ripe.net/ripe/docs/smallest-alloc-sizes.html
each time the IANA give us more space.

I think it's very on topic.
