The IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC
Service Region state that ' These policies apply to the RIPE NCC and the
Local Internet Registries (LIRs) within the RIPE NCC service region.'
In addition, RFC 2050 says: "This document makes a distinction between
the allocation of IP addresses and the assignment of IP addresses.
Addresses are allocated to ISPs by regional registries to assign to its
customer base. ISPs who exchange routing information with other ISPs at
multiple locations and operate without default routing may request space
directly from the regional registry in its geographical area. ISPs with
no designated regional registry may contact any regional registry and
the regional registry may either handle the request or refer the request
to an appropriate registry."
The RIPE NCC interprets these statements as we explained on the mailing
list. If the RIPE community feels this interpretation is not correct,
do let us know.
