[arin-ppml] Can a personal property approach ever transitioninto multi-stakeholder, private sector led, bottom-up policy development model?

I believe the creation of an open IPv4 transfer market WILL increase its
likelihood of hanging around for a while.

Is ARIN's stewardship role to hasten its demise by any means, since an IPv6
future is superior, even if the market thinks otherwise?

Or to create conditions which allow as many IPv4 addresses as possible to be
brought into use?

Is that the choice the community should be making to guide policy
