You note the limitations, but I am still trying to understand out how these 
constraints would "hurt" someone who needs IPv4 address space.  I see how 
they may pose an administrative burden, but there will be some additional 
administrative burden in going to the market to obtain IPv4 space in any
case.  Are you saying that this additional administrative hassle is the 
"harm" that late adopters will experience, or something more than that?
