Sixteen /23's could have been allocated as a single /19.

Even those sixteen /23's, which were not on a /19 boundary, could have been
expressed as aggregates.

RIPE isn't going to announce routes for those netblocks, so it doesn't
really matter. Maybe I just like tidiness for its own sake (but you wouldn't
believe that if you saw my room :-)
