What this "smells" like to me is:  Legacy numbers may be transferred to a broker on consignment for 12 months where they can be resold to the highest bidder.  At the end of 12 months, any unsold space is returned to the original legacy holder and anyone who bought portions of that space is then on the hook to justify their need for the address. The only thing remaining with the broker is the cash in their pocket.
