The concept of PI space is definitely not broken. There is a
very real need for organisations, large and small, to be able
to connect to multiple Internet providers without having to pay
several thousand euros to ripe and spend a week filling in
forms to become a LIR.

If the internet addressing structure is broken then change it
and if you're running out of numbers then invent some more.

We should not be putting financial and administrative barriers
in the way of people who want to be multiply connected.
