Who said anything about not being utilized? The space will be  
utilized, just not on a network directly connected.

Renter: "I would like to rent a /20."
ISP: "Okay, can you document and justify it?"
Renter: "Sure, here's my paperwork and network diagrams of how I plan  
to use this space."
ISP: "Great, That will be $x/month."

Renter goes an announces the /20 through their existing transit  
connections. If ISP doesn't want to appear to be renting the space  
out, they might work out a deal where they'll announce it too, but  
prepended to death.

For the record, I'm not saying I *support* doing this, and have  
absolutely no plans to attempt this from either side. Just that I  
don't see why it's not possible now.
