I agree with Fredrik. This is a good way to empower users. And I want that
to happen, for a multitude of reasons, one significant being that I believe
that empowered users are likely to buy more Internet capacity, keeping all
of us busy.

One *might* assign some kind of limit per subscriber, to prevent from DoS
by snarfing all leases. This, I believe, is already being done, by
Bredbandsbolaget.

On a related note -- Regardless of the issues I have with some of the
things I've heard B2 does (for example altering a DHCP server so it
deliberately denies renewal in favour of another address, and the debacle
with the Digisip-issued Cisco ATA boxes being given RFC1918 leases) I find
that the basic structure and service level both are sound -- a rle model
for a consumer broadband operation.

We're sysadmins. To us, data is a protocol-overhead.
