And why, exactly do we have a rule now that you can only get 3 months of 
space for initial allocations? Everyone who isn't an initial allocation 
*can* get 12 months via the transfer market... what makes them special 
or any more deserving of the fruits of a transfer market?

What I think will happen is that anyone with enough money to afford 12 
months of address space can afford to do something to work around this 
rule... possibly failing to update the whois database in the process.
