It's not necessarily unaggregated... I'm not sure, it's possible that Sean might have described the swamp as basically space above the a/b space and < 205/8. > Is the swamp then bounded by class c addresses warranted as routable when > they were handed out? Are you saying then that the defaultless core No, warranted as "ok, I can deal with routes from that space" by Sprint's filters. > routability of class c's from the swamp is, as of now, guaranteed? Define "guarantee". No, nothing is "guaranteed", but there'd be HUGE objection to any new filtering policies that affected already-allocated- and-routed space. > Of the class cs from the swamp how many are now being routed at the > defaultless core? HOW MANY ADDITIONAL CLASS Cs FROM THE SWAMP ARE THERE No clue, but we could find out. > FOR WHICH THE OWNERS COULD DEMAND ROUTING? Many :) > In other words are these 5,000 new class c's just the beginning? Or are > they, hopefully the end? Hard to say, we'd have to see how many of the new /24s are actually "Class C"s.
