I agree with the views expressed by Kevin. I believe there could be
unforeseen consequences if the policy is adopted. "If ain't broke
don't fix it."
As to the opinion there is no correlation between the current
financial mess and the proposal, while I agree it may not impact the
economy in a major way, we are talking about relative value here, and
that is precisely what the current mortgage crisis is about,. So I
guess I get the analogy. We are always promised that it will "take
care of itself" due to market forces. We were told that by Enron, The
Savings and Loans, and now investment bankers.
ARIN has done a great job to date. Just my 2 cents worth.....
