LOL!  The last time the notion of per-address pricing came up
here, the figure that would give ARIN the same income as under
the current scheme was about $.06, IIRC... I'd happily do that,
at $15.36/year for a /24, and would pay five years at a time 
to reduce overheads (which I do for the domains already, BTW).  

But somehow, I doubt if the folks with /8s would be nearly as 
pleased, since they pay far, far less per address now... and
as that group is well represented on the ARIN board... <g>

However, wouldn't that be a great incentive to return what
you don't really need?  Want to write up the proposal, Bill?
