Price stability does not require a middle man to hold assets, they only need
to be listed, but I will give you liquidity for *sellers* absolutely.

Do we really need such liquidity for *sellers* in IPv4? Is there even use
for such?

I thought the whole point was to free up space for use, not to allow holders
to immediately profit from selling?
