I think it is inevitable (or is it already happening?) that some end-users 
with unused space will decide to act as LIRs.  I think its in everyone's 
best interest that they be able to SWIP.

If these end-user LIRs want to be able to SWIP their customer blocks, 
should they have to convert their assignments to allocations (and pay the 
likely much larger annual fee(s))?
