In any case, it isn't forbidden, and never has been. There's
absolutely nothing to stop the ISPs in Klingonville grouping
together to set up a local IXP, which gets a short prefix from
the RIR, and then uses it as a metro area prefix for all
local customers, with whatever policies and configurations
are needed in the IXP-connected routers.
