Ummm.. since the routing tables are already too full I dont see a chance to
handel all the ipv4 routes and New routes for 128Bit Addresses without some
rediesigned policy. It is simply not pssible to carry very single Class-C
net in the routing tables. Therefoe enforcing NetBlocks for providers is a
very good decission to enable Backbone routers to carry on their taks.

This means the nets are not or very bad connected to the internet. This
problem needs to be solved. The easiest way is to force customers to switch
net (prefixes) on switching ISPs.. anyway.. anybody knows about a paper to
that issue?
