Let me give you a real world example.

1. Buy rights to use addresses in any quantity you believe you need
2. Use those addresses as you need them, assuming the agreement you made
with the party works properly
3. Get an LOA from the documented owner
4. Bypass ARIN entirely
5. Use the addresses.

How do you think we should solve that problem?
