In your article you imply that the RIRs' registry functions are not the 
proper lever from which to apply the various regulatory functions that the 
community has indicated are needed.  Where/how would you propose the 
regulatory function reside / be applied instead?

Or, to put a more practical face on the same question: how do you propose 
that the industry deal with the deaggregation that will result from the 
widespread transfer of small netblocks (as allowed under prop-50)?

I agree that restricting deaggregation through regulating access to the 
registry will not be 100% effective, but it seems more likely to be 
effective than any alternative I've seen so far.
