Because they know how to calculate risk, make business decisions, and 
hire lawyers who know how to write commercial contracts?  As for the 
original question, if anything even vaguely approaching an open market 
develops, I would expect the price of addresses to reflect their 
quality.  Start selling me /28s at 10 cents each and I'll buy a couple 
thousand just to see if some of them eventually work out.  I rather 
suspect that I'd be outbid.
