We have had a handful of organizations switch from end-user to ISP for the
purposes of being able to put in reassignment records (e.g. to improve the
usefulness of geolocation), but it is almost certain that others having avoided
such a change due to the cost implications.

In the end, the community has to consider the indirect financial benefit vs the 
implied reduction in usefulness of the registry that results when parties seek
to avoid paying same.
