    Well, let's rephrase that. Anyone can't get a TLD zone?
    And no, you are the man. :)

    Thanks! Much appreciated.

    What could F or I do if an operator were advertising
    those blocks internally? Consider them no different than
    blackholes. It's the same concept.

    The point is that there's little reason to believe that
    this couldn't be done by any operator or other entity
    (OpenDNS?) technically, legally and legitimately.

    [ Note: F and I are just the simple examples. ]
