Did you not notice that we _already have_ a trade-in program, and that some 
nice folks have already taken advantage of it?  It even lets folks keep 
their fee-free status if the resources they're trading in were previously 
fee-free.  We also have a trade-down program as well.  However, both are 
completely voluntary at this time.

BTW, I've officially submitted a "suggestion" that ARIN start proactive 
reclamation efforts (2007.6).  I'll let folks here know the result if ARIN 
doesn't post it publicly.
