okay, sorry, let me clarify. I have personally had people try to
sell me swamp space before on several occasions. I took that to mean
that probably many other people out there were doing it, which may or
may not be true. I don't know how large or diverse the market is. I
*assume* it would grow after exhaustion.
The only reason I said "The market would and does exist independant
of ARIN" was an attempt to correct a statement by someone that ARIN
would be creating a market. It is my belief that this market would
exist without any assistance from ARIN, and probably even if ARIN
tried to squash it.
2008-2 wouldn't "create" a market in my mind. Enable, Validate, lots
of other words might apply. I don't think "create" applies.
