Perhaps, one could say: that both the Marketplace and the Waitlist

set of number resources can only be transferred from existing holders...
not "freshly allocated" likely encourages fraud.

100% IPv6 deployment should alleviate the v4 registry issues
(by eliminating the utility for v4 space) and thus remove
potential incentives for bad actors.

Perhaps it would make sense to have a requirement such
as "Demonstrate matching IPv6 deployment for all previous
allocations,  and materialized plans for IPv6 deployment in
all  future/applied for allocations"   as

A required condition for receiving resources, whether by marketplace
or by wait list.
