[arin-ppml] Revised and Retitled - Draft Policy ARIN-2021-6: Permit IPv4 Leased Addresses for Purposes of Determining Utilization for Future Allocations

8.5.2 Operational Use reads:

> ARIN allocates or assigns number resources to organizations via transfer solely for the purpose of use on an operational network.


If you’re going to remove that, what is to stop me from opening a new LIR and stating that I want pre-qualification for a transfer of a /8 to lease out, because I have sales projections that I can lease out a /9 within 24 months, a /10 within 12 months, and a /11 within 6 months? And if I fail to meet my sales projections, I can sell some or all of the /8 after 12 months (presumably at a profit, as prices just keep going up).  

It seems that there should be some limit on initial block size if we’re going to rely exclusively on recipients’ leasing projections instead of requiring use on an operational network. Once they have leased out 50% of their initial block to tenants who are using the space on their own networks, they could then come back for approval to receive a larger block via transfer, sized to an extrapolation of their 24 month need based on how quickly they leased out their existing space.
