APNIC notes that the proposed default IPv4 delegation size for any new IXP will be a /26, and the IXP can request more based on the number of peers connected at that IX facility. Current large IXP account holders can request a contiguous /22 IPv4 if 80% of the current /23 IPv4 is used, and the existing /23 must be returned
APNIC also notes that the proposal suggests APNIC check the routing table to revoke any less than /24 IPv4 delegations announced in the global routing table.
Can an existing account holder request more IP addresses if they have already received their final /23 IPv4 under the current IPv4 policy and want to start an IXP?
There is an assumption with this proposal that IXP-type account holders
