Being as at this point IP addresses are not transferrable property then
doesn't that make every transaction where an ISP grants leased use of IP
addresses to it's customers for off site termination without SWIP or
other registration a de facto black market (or at least grey market)
transaction? That would say we have a pretty widespread and common
place black market in existance today.

Until some examples of successful black market behavior in IPv4 are
cited in this forum, claims that a black market exists are nothing more
than political horse pucky
It's as bad as the Republicans wanting to pass the flag-burning laws
when there's no evidence that flag burning has occurred in 99.9% of the
times that they claim it has.
