Ok, here is an alternative "thought" (it is not a
proposal, and for full disclosure, I might very
well "vote" against it because there are things
I do not like about my proposal, but it might be
a different way to frame the issue by suggesting
a way that many can get a little of what they want).
Legacy numbers (and only legacy numbers) may
be transferred to a recipient under an RSA with
the need justifications being deferred for 12 months
(at which time numbers that would not be justified
would return to ARIN).
Adv: Allows legacy holders to monetize their underused
numbers (winner legacy holder)
Adv: Allows recipients to defer justifications until their
business plans are more finalized (winner recipient)
Adv: Move legacy numbers to RSA (winner ARIN community)
Adv: Allows brokers to monetize additional facilitations
Dis: ARIN would have to track "deferred" justifications
Dis: The numbers could end up being "tainted"
while in the possession of the temporary holder
(think business plan of a spammer)
Dis: Requires ARIN to potentially "claw back"
