However, as we proceed through run-out of the general IPv4 free pool the motivations for abuse will increase dramatically. Raising the standard to three participants to qualify as an IXP seems like a prudent precaution to ensure that the reservation for IXPs, and other critical infrastructure that was made in ARIN-2011-4, is protected to ensure availability of resources for legitimate IXPs in the future.
