I oppose this proposal.
1. There are many legitimate uses of address space that will not appear in publicly visible routing tables.
2. There is no "The routing table". There are many routing tables each with its own subtle differences.
Failure to appear in any particular one should not cause resource revocation.
3. This policy is not in the best interests of the community and could lead to unnecessary litigation
and other problems.

>> 1.0 Summary of the Problem Being Addressed by this Policy Proposal
>> With the depletion of ICANN/IANA pool relatively sooner than later, and the AfriNIC pool, ISPs will soon be faced with the tough reality of IPv4 address scarcity. Some studies indicate that there is a lot of IPv4 that has been allocated but is not used or routed. This proposal attempts to find a way to free this space so that it can be issued to ISPs that have a real use for it.

>> While this proposal will not significantly extend the lifetime of IPv4, it will ensure that unused IPv4 is righfully utilized and not hoarded by those ISPs that have no use for it.
