I agree as well.  It's also justifiable in terms of paying a registrar 
for domain and reverse DNS. I have no problem paying $10 a year or 
whatever to godaddy  for a dot com registration,
so I have no opposition to paying to an in-addr.arpa registrar, who 
could provide whois and registrar services at a competitive rate.
Just as dot com registration was once free and was converted to pay as 
you go, so can in-addr.arpa for legacy registrants. Perhaps this can 
side-step some of the opposition to legacy changes.

Most of this could leverage existing registrar, domain registration and 
whois infrastructure. So legacy holders can pay their way for the 
registration infrastructure, while any questions of "ownership" or 
legitimacy can be sorted out separately, or they can simply whither on 
the vine with IPv6 approaching.
