Don't forget the enterprises that number themselves out of 'unallocated' space :) which might very well be the space that was just recently released. It's a really fun conversation when your customer (or some enterprise) realizes that RFC1918 is there for a reason, and that their 10k person network is going to need a really complicated renumber out of the 72.x.x.x/8 and into 10.x.x.x :( Suffice it to say that there are a myriad of reasons these new allocations could seem 'broken' to folks. Testing real-world applications seems like a reasonable first step. Having an org (cymru in this case) able to provide http/icmp targets on these prior to RIR allocations going bananas seems like that first step. Those that wish to test can, those that don't don't... simple?
