If all it takes is converting from an end-user to an ISP so that the block can be reassigned, would that be in full compliance with the existing NRPM?
There is little applicable policy with respect to the usage of IP address
blocks, i.e. it is not clear that such leasing is (or should be) disallowed.
This is a good reason for the community to think carefully about
restrictions on transfers - as noted earlier by others, restrictions
on transfers often lead to workarounds via creative usage models.
