You would get it if sufficient demand for a market existed and some  
other organisation was willing to provide a registry that operated by  
a different set of policies. However, as ARIN's policies are set by  
consensus, the situation where ARIN's policies diverge significantly  
from the policies demanded by its constituency is unlikely to arise.  
The real issue is whether the participants in ARIN's policy making  
process want to keep the FCFS model or would prefer to move to a  
market-based model.
