dunno.  but, imiho, what it should be is a few things
  o allow newcomers into the game, albeit probably at a higher cost
    than the early entrants
  o flush out underutilized space
  o see that space migrates to what is termed 'best use'

what is needed?  in talking to economics and market folk these last
days, i got no clear indication of "must haves."

i would be interested in hearing if speculative purchasing would have a
signature we could detect and use to ameliorate speculation in some fashion.
