Perhaps IP leasing should be allowed, But all consideration must be
declared to ARIN, and 50% of all revenue from any lease or transfer with
consideration must be paid to ARIN specifically to be dedicated to funding
enforcement and fraud prevention efforts. ^_`
These "Fig leafs" for address leasing sound like basically fraud.
If there's a fig leaf, that's used to conceal a lack of valid justification
under existent policy with intended purpose as merely a device to
circumvent the policy language; its a form of fraud.
At least in theory;
that ought to be rejected in most cases -- just b/c there might be some
allowable applications for IP space that involve VPNs, Etc; does not
mean that arbitrarily creating a VPN, etc, for IP address association
is not fraud.
At the end of the day, any applicant can design some technical
concoction which artificially requires IP addresses.
I believe ARIN staff ought to be able to investigate applications for IP
space and consider based on surrounding facts and circumstances --
Whether there is adequate proof that something looking like a
VPN or Switch port "Fig leaf" has a well-established reason for
existing with a purpose of providing primary or at least equal network
connectivity to other methods of connectivity commercially available to
