IMHO, we should do everything we can to prevent "internet landlords."
Further, I do not see a legitimage use case problem that is solved by
allowing leasing that is not solved by upstream provided address space, or
barring that, 4.10 of the NRPM. If we want to enable spammers, attack
networks, and other bad actors, then leasing is for sure a great solution
for them, and the "internet slumlords" that would provide their resources.
