I remain opposed to this proposal for the same reasons stated before.

I don't see what can avoid that someone to register a new company, get 
into the waiting list, receive an allocation and right after that be 
"purchased" by another company which is not entitled to be in the 
waiting list anymore bypassing the 60 months restriction.

Although it may not be the easiest thing to do deal with all paperwork, 
bureaucracy and register company, depending on the rising price of IPv4 
in the market someone may find that became worth the efforts and this 
could (not right now, but at some point in the future) turn into a way 
to bypass the waiting list restriction as the mathematics will cover all 
the costs involved in the whole transaction.
This proposal may bring an issue in such scenario and perhaps there 
should still be some minimal time restriction that makes it more 
difficult for fraudsters to act with such intention.
