So then why do you care what the needs criteria is for IPv4?

For the next several years there will be businesses, existing and new, that will need IPv4 addresses in order to be reachable on the IPv4 Internet. There are addresses out there, that for enough money people would take the time to part with in order to fulfill the requirements during these next several years. Your position is that we should make it as unfair as possible to as many people as possible who might be on the "need" side of this equation, as far as I can tell.
