True, but we are not trying to list unallocated address space but rather
addresses that are reserved. It's basically RFC 5735 and RFC 5156.

I have actually gone further than that and listed most IPv6 space as
bogons based on http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-address-space/ipv6-address-space.xhtml
(But that page seems slightly wrong to me: RFC 4291 does not reserve all
those address blocks; RFC 3513 says most of them should be "unassigned").
I'm willing to agree that this might not be wise in the long run :-)

Viking, North Utsire: Easterly 4 or 5, increasing 6 at times. Slight or
moderate, but rough in southwest Viking. Showers later. Good, occasionally
poor later.
