Hello Owen,

"...effectively prevent all LIRs from engaging in leasing transactions or
(sur)charging on the basis of the number of IP number resources issued."
This should be more accurately stated as "...effectively prevent all
ARIN-based LIRs from engaging in leasing transactions or (sur)charging on
the basis of the number of IP number resources issued." Do you know if
other RIRs prevent the leasing, surcharging, or both of IP addresses? How
would 'out of region' leases be handled? What would stop a company from
transferring ARIN-based IP addresses to an RIR that allows leasing and then
engaging in that business model from that point forward?

What would prevent a company from charging a fee based on some other
datapoint; a service fee, a static configuration fee, an engineering fee,
etc., that, in effect, replaces the term 'IP Surcharge'?

I'm afraid that I must agree with Michel.  I see no effective way of
enforcing this policy, either regionally or globally.
