[arin-ppml] quantitative study of IPv4 address market

Thank you for your input. Dialog is helpful. First of all I did not advocate setting a 30 year timeline but the fact that organizations run that way should not be ignored and should be factored into decision making. I strongly disagree that there is not enough IP addresses for even a 1 year horizon. Nobody really knows how many unused and potentially available IPv4 addresses there really are. Once the price is right many will come out of the closet. But more important is that it is not ARINs charter to decide NOT to allocate. It is ARINs charter TO allocate, prudently yes, but ALLOCATE is the primary mission. That is why ARIN was created. It certainly was NOT created to solve or at least improve the IPv4 exhaustion problem - and the exhaustion problem needs to be secondary to the primary mission of allocation.
From everything I see, the Exhaustion problem and attempts to deal with it are being put ahead of the allocate mission, and that is causing smaller organizations like ours to be denied address blocks - even the minimum amount of IP addresses. I do believe that there needs to be a fair and level playing field and my strong opinion is that some of the policies in place purposely discriminate against smaller organizations in favor of larger ones. ARINs mission says nothing about discriminating based on size and this needs to be fixed. Smaller organizations are just as much a part of this community as larger ones. Thanks!

It is not (and has not been for decades) possible to take care of the entire community's needs if you define that to include 30 year projected need.
In fact, at this point, it is not even possible with one year projected need..
If you want to make the 30 year projection case for IPv6, that may make more sense.
However, with IPv4, you need to ensure you can continue to do what is practical, and fair, and that is to at a minimum, preserve your ability to give everybody something for as long as possible.
