No, we haven't gotten that far.  I think it's a question of having  
lawyers review some terms that someone had expressed some concerns  
over, and the blocking factor that it's not high enough on the  
priority list compared to a large pile of other things that have to  
be taken to the lawyers.  (Which reminds me, it's about time for me  
to ping again the guy whose job it would be to ping the lawyers....)

Um, right, not /16.  Actually, I think ours is a /32.  Our only  
currently working upstream is VBNS, and last I checked, they weren't  
filtering it.  But even then I don't think it was getting to any  
looking glass I could find.

Hm, that's annoying.  Not too surprising, though.  And no one's  
currently advertising the MERIT /24 block, I would assume.

Thanks, I think that might help...
