who gets a /32 [Re: IPV6 renumbering painless?]

Actually, the policy also specifies that you must not be an end-site.So you're claiming that any IPv6 PI applicant without your political connections to the IESG, ARIN, IANA, etc. can get a /32? I don't know exactly how many subnets/hosts ISC has, but I seriously doubt ISC could even get a PI /48 if you weren't buddies with the folks making allocation decisions.Nobody is required to count hosts or subnets in order to justify a request for PI v6 space from an RIR. All an applicant needs to do is meet the criteria laid out in the policies, and addresses are assigned or allocated.
I'd be particularly interested in knowing what ISC said who would be their 200 other organizations who they intended to allocate the address space (their employees?), and how ISC would not be an end-site.
This is a more generic issue, of course.
