Exactly. All that the existing policies are doing is making it harder 
for people who want to buy space from people who have it to sell to do so.

*That* is "market manipulation", as Owen puts it (by the ARIN community 
through the policies it has set, no less). It also provides "competitive 
advantage" to those who are able to get around these policies (because 
they have enough lawyers, or can create additional legal entities to 
re-characterize things as 8.2 transfers, or whatever).
