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.
