Right, but only one /12 will be allocated from that /11. A proposal for 
what to do with the remaining /12 did not achieve consensus.

We're about six months from that date?

Or maybe it's twelve months, and then 3-6 months to use up that /12.

Would recovered addresses change what phase we're in, or are phases one 
way gates?
