I agree on a migration period as well but I think 6

Arguably, 6 months is too long when we are talking about requires a
customer of one provider to renumber when moving to another, 3 months
seems more appropriate here.
Consider the scenario where several /22 networks
change to use
another provider over the 6 month period. This could result in
large amounts of space being unavailable. I doubt whether APNIC
would be well disposed to issue more space in this case.
Perhaps... but the scenario I suggested, which I might add, APNIC
probably won't take seriously, is that ALL of NZ renumbers. This is a
fairly large task that will require much planning, and in this case,
I think a 6 month transition period is reasonable.
I'd suggest that a maximum period of two months
would be a better
For moving a customer, yes (although I think 3 is better), for moving
all of NZ - no.
Does anyone see any reason for all of NZ to renumber? I like the
idea, mainly because NZ address space is a mess, and it would be a
good time to clean it up, before it grows much more... beyond the
point where its feasible.
