Impractical. $5k lets me stand up a new, independent legal entity that
can legitimately tap the free pool regardless of any other entity's
prior behavior. Done it for customers. Twice.

I am allocated a /16 for my 50,000 customer Smartphone business so I
can stop using my ISP's addresses. I configure the addresses on my
DHCP equipment which assigns them to each always-on smartphone. Fast
forward 30 days. Another company offers me $100,000 to convert all the
phones to carrier NAT and transfer the /16 to them. I accept. My
paperwork "proves" all this. Do I fail the audit?

I have a 50,000 customer Smartphone business. I use carrier NAT to
isolate them behind a few IP public addresses. I request a /16 so I
can assign real, global IP addresses to every always-on phone. Is my
request denied?
