In my humble personal opinion this is the result and natural side-effect 
of stimulating things like IP Leasing from those who have a lot of spare 
IP Address to those who have been seeking it specially in the times of 
IPv4 exhaustion.

Some people, even those who are not directly involved in these type of 
business, belittle it and say that´s a normal thing, that we have to 
accept it, etc, etc, but it is not.
It is not by chance that this has never been an accepted practice to 
justify the need for resources to any RIR, because IP addresses are a 
shared owned resource and should not be available to be disposed at will 
by any resource holders.

Because of this distortion this said "normal thing" causes in the market 
it may have side effects like this and why everyone that cares about 
stability of this system should strongly repeal any kind of IP Leasing 
in order to not worse things even more in the ecosystem we are all 
involved. Today is in AfriNic, tomorrow may be at your nextdoor.
