If you provide a scarce resource at no cost - it will be abused.  This
happened with IPv4, in part, due to the fee schedule.

ARIN is providing scarce number resources at no cost to large
organizations. Therefore the incentive to conserve or allocate those
resources is absent.   This isn't fair and equitable, nor sustainable.
It's not too late to create incentives for members to make more efficient
use of IPv4 allocations.

Small and medium organizations should not pay an extraordinary portion of
the fees while large ones receive enormous additional allocations at no

A switch to either; Algorithmic, Linear, or an Extended Fee Schedule will
increase Fairness and Conservation.  ARIN's mission is to be a steward of
these principles.  That should our mission too.  Let's see it happen!

If you have yet to read the report John mentioned... It's eye opening.
