Hi Kevin,

Out of curiosity, do you think that litigators and regulators are more  
likely (or maybe very likely) to keep their fingers out if, after  
enabling the emergence of commercial IPv4 transfers, the RIRs take no  
further actions of any kind related to any IPv4 markets that emerge  
thereafter? Are your views on that probability-of-intervention  
question based on any particular expectation about whether and how  
IPv4 markets will actually work, or are they independent of all such  
expectations (i.e., no matter how things turn out, it would be better  
in all cases for the RIRs to take no position / no action at all)?
