That is a potential risk that some will take, whereas others may 
decide to avoid doing speculation in this particular market. 

One other point regarding transfers from a party with actual need -
the risks may increase depending on any policy constraints on the 
supplier of the IP addressees (e.g. if you qualify based on need,
but the party you're getting them from does not have that amount 
of space in contiguous blocks that match policy constraints, or if 
you are seeking a small number of addresses which is less than any 
minimum size requirement, etc.)
