I support the proposal as written.
facilitates the provision of a valuable service to a large swath of the
ARIN community, namely the ability of network operators with an
operational need to lease IPv4 addresses from 3rd party lessors at a
fraction of the cost of purchasing those addresses. Too often we have
seen network operators justify their need for IPv4 space only to find
that they can't afford to make the purchase. They end up using CGNAT or
some other sub-optimal solution.
Bill, regarding your point "B", by providing IPv4 leasing, these 3rd parties are certainly performing a function that ARIN does not.

I continue to OPPOSE this proposal because:
A) It asks ARIN to facilitate blatant and unapologetic rent-seeking
behavior with changes to public policy.
B) It proposes that third parties perform precisely and only the
functions that ARIN itself performs without any credible compliance
mechanism to assure the third party performs to ARIN's standards or in
accordance with the community's established number policy.
