You may have seen this, but if not: 
http://mailman.nanog.org/pipermail/nanog/2013-January/055248.html. Deals

I've found plenty of lively discussion (if not consensus) on how to allocate subnets, some ideas on numbering, and a good deal of application-layer BCPs, but I'm simply not finding very much info coming out of the service provider community.
