Just to clarify, my point was rather that PI *in itself* isn't evil.
There's in my experience a great misconception of this in the region.
Whether an address block is a PI assignment or a PA allocation, is
really irrelevant to the amount of routes it generates (provided
allocations are aggregated :). So saying that it's better to give people
a PA allocation than a PI assignment (whether they have customers or
not) and that this will address the problems with PI and an ever-growing
routing table is not correct.
I'm not argueing in any way for or against PI, I am just trying to
clarify the terminology. :)
I do however understand your point about smaller organisations not
qualifying for an allocation, and that's of course a separate issue.
