What the RIR's could do is limit subdivision of assignments to
only a certain level when transferring them. If you had a /16 you
could only sell it off in chunks of /20 for example.
The current RIR's have the best chance of implementing those kinds
of restrictions by supporting markets early, but time is running out.
