	While I'll agree to the lema that the Internet of today is 
	not the same as the Internet of last century, I refuse to 
	beleive that all users/potential users of Internet Addressing
	are driven by revenue/profit.

	Non-profits, research, government, military, public service
	sectors all can and do benefit from equal access to communications
	capabilities...   And their use of IP addresses is not driven
	by revenue/profit.  Does an open market best serve the needs of
	these communities?  Or is the existing needs-based system do a 
	better job of resource allocation?
