I have to agree with JD on this.  I am a huge proponent of 'Legacy' holders being able to continue their use of their IP4 space ad infinitum by virtue of their past contribution to the community, but at the point or moment that they release or transfer any netblocks to another (legacy or non-legacy) party then all deals are off and the subject netblocks *should* become common.  I do not hold the 'rights' of 'Legacy' holders to include sale of and/or profit from the netblocks.
I have said this in as plain a manner as I can on purpose.

Of course I understand that my understandings are my opinion only and may have little bearing on reality.
