I do think the comparison is reasonable given the explosive, important and successful outcome of it's impacts (our current Internet) ....and within the scope that comparisons are reasonable anyway.  One might argue that perturbing the status quo related to the Internet, its governance and technical architecture should be guarded against major diversion in the same way that the Constitution is very difficult to amend.  The risk lay in the un-intended consequences more that the inefficiencies that seem to exist in this moment of time.

Bill, do you really think this is a reasonable comparison?  On one hand: a document that has withstood 200+ years of change, written by representatives from all the colonies, enshrining the basic structure of our government and individual liberties.  On the other hand: a document written 15 years ago, by a handful of people, expressing administrative choices based on then-current technology limitations.

Higher prices generally increase the number of sellers.  This is a good thing, given a scarce supply and ongoing need.

If ARIN doesn't enable the highest market prices then sellers will go elsewhere.  The benefits of working with ARIN need to out-weigh the costs, if we wish to preserve accuracy in ARIN's whois data.

Cheers,
