And if it's not "the commons", but instead some special right due to
"Early Internet Protocol or Internet Services Pioneer" status, then
one would expect the rights to be based on the circumstances under
which such allocations were made (to facilitate development of the
Internet) rather than rewriting the aberrations of our initial
addressing model with fixed network/address boundaries into some
form of twisted pioneer's reward...

(solely my personal thoughts on the topic)
