OK, your referring to people not giving it up post-IPv4 runout,
not land-grabs pre-IPv4 runout
Also I think what your talking about is speculation, not hoarding.

No. It is restricted because of the sunset clause of 3 years in it.
Granted that's not the kind of restrictions I think you were thinking
about but it is a restriction.

I am just leery of people saying that such-and-such is happening right
now and offering no proof that it's actually happening.
