Amusingly, they don’t even have to purchase “RIPE” addresses… They can purchase ARIN addresses (or LACNIC or APNIC) into RIPE via the inter-RIR transfer policies.

I don’t think Bill seeks to benefit lessees. I think he prefers to shaft lessors and lessees in favor of allowing price-gouging ISPs to be the exclusive and only LIRs.
