Re: IPV6 renumbering painless?
Any org viewing ASNs as a scarce resource is wasting money keeping ASNs.
Any org that financially broken will probably not continue to pay it's
bills in the long run.
I believe these are the exception and not the rule. Like I said, the
long-term answer to this is 32bit ASNs. I don't think hoarding will account
for a significant portion of the ASN space in the long run.

These unused resources are gone forever - since they are seen as a scarce resource, they are kept artificially alive (even though the orgs know full well there is neither a use nor a justification for them). //Alif
