Hi John

I don't think anyone discussing this thread is much concerned about 
pricing of services between ARIN participants and their customers 
really. I am personally not. The confusion may have come from the way 
Owen have put the text of this proposal.
What we are discussing so far is only about a proposal to have an 
appropriate language to ban Leasing of IP Addresses by LIRs.

Hope this helps to clarify

Regards
Fernando
