Re: Requesting P.I. Space from ARIN - latest issues?

Most if not all of the /8s that get assigned to ARIN have a prescribed minimum allocation size. How rigorously that is followed is another story :-) I don't think you can specifically request that ARIN assign you space out of the swamp these days.1) I meet the Multihoming requirement, which means I can get a block as small as a /22, which is about right for my needs. Are there still any concerns about networks (as Verio and Sprint have done in the past) filtering out longer prefixes, and if so, does it depend on whether it;s former class A, B, C or swamp space? I know when I got my current block from my upstream, I had to make sure I got swamp space, because the former class B block they initially allocated to me wouldn't have made it past Verio's filters at that time.
