True.  But oddly enough, when the energy discount structure in
California reversed a few years back, in response to an energy
shortage (albeit one deliberately created by Enron ;-), there
were no such suits.  The megacorps just absorbed the major rate
increases they were given.  Perhaps the same thing would happen
if the IPv4 rate discounts were inverted too.
