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 co.za
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
We do need PI space.
