Re: We can take entire 24 ranges back

Assuming Wiki is up-to-date, there aren't many remaining /8 address block owners that aren't ISP's:

Pfft.. /8's are for wimps! So there's, split into and lightly used for multicasting, and then That one was 'reserved for future use', and the future could be now. But IANA says 'NO!' and thou shalt move to IPv6.

But that's.. controversial, especially given there's probably a lot of 224/4 that could be recovered and reassigned.
