Just out of curiosity, why should Internic strap on more asbestos? 

I thought the following would have been warning enough:

 ***PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION PRIOR TO REQUESTING AN
IP NUMBER FROM THE INTERNIC:

Due to technical and implementation constraints on the Internet routing
system and the possibility of routing overload, certain policies may
need to be enforced by the major transit providers in order to reduce
the number of globally advertised routes.  These potential policies
may include setting limits on the size of CIDR prefixes added to the
routing tables, filtering of non-aggregated routes, etc.  Therefore,
addresses obtained directly from the InterNIC (non-provider-based,
also known as portable) are not guaranteed to be routable on the Internet.
