Let's look at populated sample pool with the minimum set to /25:

50% = /25
40% = /24
5% = /20
5% = /18

Let's reduce the pool by 50%

50% lose nothing
40% lose 128 addrs
5% lose 2,048 addresses
5% lose 8,192 address

Let's show cost @ $1,000 per addr to amplify the damage

128 replacement addresses = $128,000.00
2,048 replacement addresses = $2,048,000.00
8,192 replacement address = $8,192,000.00

I chose $1,000 as an amplifier since it certainly draws attention and I
think that based on what I know about the market, it's feasible.

The data at the below URL is almost three years old, but still relevant with
respect to a normative number:

I have other data points on current pricing. I'm not the market maker so
please see me at the NANOG or ARIN meeting to discuss if needed. Anyone for
that matter - if you are truly interested in what's coming down the road.

Why don't you build your own financial analysis of this proposal instead of
speculating on motive then? I haven't even factored in the cost of capital
needed or the accounting method to expense the addresses which would raise
the costs higher.

Hope that makes it clearer as to why I am opposing. There simply has to be a
better way.
