Not at all. I personally believe that increasing the number of disaggregated prefixes (an obvious
likely outcome of an unrestricted transfer market) is the fastest path to hastening the demise
of a useful IPv4 internet.
As such, I believe that preserving stewardship is more important than maximizing the profits
of people who want to monetize their addresses.
