Please tell me simply what keeps those who wish to de-aggregate their
available blocks beyond that which ARIN will sanction...from using the
gray or black market to do so.

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.
