so, would it be better in your opinion that there not be such a market,
which presumably would not occur without an ARIN transfer policy, since
sellers would be in violation of their RSA's?  or is the fact that most
space in the world is legacy mean that such a market will come into
existence (perhaps, created and operated by speculators?) no matter what
ARIN does with 2008-2?
