Although I would grant volume pricing, and a break on some of the reserved
space, I like this policy.  I heard from several on this list say that it
should be expected that ISPs itemize their bills any way they wish.  The
same should be true for ARIN.  How is it fair that some pay and others do
not?  Especially when the ones that do not pay, hold the most space.  Some
of that space not even used.  Am I way off base here?

I really do not want to join or start any conspiracy theories, but this is
beginning to look like the working class is paying all the taxes while the
rich get fatter.

ARIN has no control over the deployment of any IPvN.  ARIN must assume 
that IPv4 is here for the foreseeable future.  ARIN`s policies must 
not rely on any replacement to the current IPv4.  All my opinion of 

ARIN just needs to focus on paying ICANN the fair-market-value RENT each
year for each of these /8s.

At $168 million dollars (each) per year, that is a lot to focus on...
