Hi Terry,

The real challenge is not in documenting the address space which should (not) be filtered, but being able to reach and convince those who are currently filtering these prefixes to stop doing so.

I'd imagine that the people in charge of networks who are currently erroneously blocking the space or have outdated WHOIS info and are unable to be contacted, are also likely to not follow the latest RFC publications or be on lists such as this...
