They can ping the class c's and take back anything that's not active. I have ISP's that have multiple class c's and they must be active to keep them.And the last blocks have been allocated. This just showed up on Slashdot:
"Following on from APNIC's earlier assessment that they would need to request the last available /8 blocks, they have now been allocated 39/8 and 106/8, triggering ARIN's final distribution of blocks to the RIRs. According to the release, 'APNIC expects normal allocations to continue for a further three to six months.'"
