Yes, they are by definition holding perfectly good space that could go to
use now which is out of play, on the chance they will be the only seller and
can make substansial money by being the only option.

This is not prevented now by community policy, thus it was in the second
category, the one that is completely unrelated to this proposal.

For the third time yes, for the same reasons as the previous two times. It
takes resources out of play *now* that could go to parties that need it
*now* for the *future* *possible* benifit of one party, to the detriment of
every other party *now*.
