We are close to that point, but the situation is more complicated than it may seem. ... Actual announcements of the IPv4 depletion have not happened, but look for more news on this subject this week, first as the final allocation to APNIC becomes official and then the invocation of the special final allocation policy by IANA. This is big news and it will affect all of us before it's over."
