ccTLD registrars are one example of people who *do* need their own IP 
space. They cannot rely on PA space because in the case of our 
they don't peer with a provider in all cases, they connect to an IXP 
and need to be self sustaining.
For other organizations which are large, and tedious renumber, the 
non-offering of PI space seems simply like a reason to force these 
people to have to do business with a single ISP or face losing their 
IP addresses.

We do need PI space.
