Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe that you had intended to
say "sales tax" rather than "commission".

The word "commission" usualy implies a significantly active role in
mating willing sellers with willing buyers.

I rather doubt that anyone would like to see ARIN become like a Real
Estate Agency.  Some, including myself, would probably not mind however
if ARIN were to evolve into a sort-of "market maker"... *not* in the
Goldman Sachs model (i.e. where they may sometimes be covertly taking
a position adverse to those of their own clients) but rather more along
the lines of the NYSE or CBO.
