It scares me that I might lose my autonomy and future expansion through no fault of my own, and it irritates me that the reason I may be forced to give up my address space will probably be to satisfy the internet's desperate need for more spam cannons.

Excuse me, "reclamation" was probably the wrong word choice on my part.  What I was intending to convey was "processing of returned blocks."

And the use for the ever-smaller blocks is not for spammers, but for the IPv4 side of 4-to-6 NATs.
