Soon or late it will end up here to “IPv4 is DEAD, go and develop IPv6”, that’s
a regular answer here when you bring up something related to IPv4 J
Your idea looks like a disk defragmentation procedure, but first you need to
check how many percent it is defragmented and how much free space you will need
to do the procedure.

Subject: [address-policy-wg] Idea for aggregating IP addresses
One of the goals of RIPE is to aggregate IP addresses. I'd like to suggest the
ability for a LIR and End User to exchange number of blocks of IP ranges for a
LIR/End User has 4 different /22 subnets and LIR/End User can exchange these
subnets for 1 x /20 subnet.
This gives a LIR or End User the possibility to announce larger IP subnets to
the Internet. Helping the goal of aggregating the IP addresses on the Internet.
According one of the RIPE trainer, this is currently not possible according the
RIPE policy. Because there's no policy to give a LIR/End User this ability.
I'm curious to what you think of this idea.
