Yes I agree it should have happened years ago and I agree that an outside marketplace already exists, but it isn't too late for ARIN to engage and embrace the new marketplace.  I certainly do understand why those large Legacy holders would just watch and wait to see what happened in the marketplace once all of the RIRs run out of resources. It is in their interest to do so.

this discussion should have happened 10 years ago. Now, it's too late.

Everyone knows that IP addresses are worth a buck or two.. The marketplace exists and at least 3 RIRs acknowledge it and their communities have built policies for it. Would you give them up if you would be having a (large) number of unused IPs; IPs that may bring your organization the money needed to invest in new equipment and skills and migrate to IPv6 :)
