Disagree. I expect that in many cases the addresses are available for transfer *only* because there is money available to free them from the current use.

This can be anywhere from "sure, if someone paid the fees my consultant would charge I'd be willing to use NAT to free up all this space" to "for seven million dollars I'd close this place and retire".
