Sales of heroin to schoolchildren already happen and there are rules against
it..  Are you saying that because it happens it should be legalized or

"They are doing it anyway" is a sad old saw and doesn't justify the end..
If it did then we should legalize and regulate copyright piracy,
prostitution, slavery and any number of other things that are prohibited or
regulated for good reason but still happen.

There are policies and procedures in place to manage the allocation of IP
addresses.  Abandoning those policies to the end user is foolhardy.  

ARIN already does a great job of transferring address space from registrant
user to another when appropriate, and they work well with the registrant
users.  Adding a transfer policy will just muck up the works.
