I think there may be some legal issues with a for-profit organization
buying off the assets of a non-profit. What do you think about there
being a restriction that an allocation to a community network be
"non-transferable to any for-profit entity"? Is this a concern,
considering that all IPv6 blocks are, under the NRPM, leased rather than
owned?
