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

If I run a network and qualify for an /18 right now, can I got to ARIN and lease one?   I must either buy one on the transfer market or lease one from a (non-ARIN) 3rd party.

Your analogy makes some sense regarding previously allocated IPv4 space, but we are in exhaust.  This policy would not have made sense when there was a free pool, but it excludes waiting list addresses and so covers that base.

Oh really? ARIN doesn't charge an annual fee to retain the IP address 
assignment they've made? And they don't reclaim the addresses for use 
by someone else should you fail to pay? Your "leasing" differs from 
ARIN's only in that you charge much more money and perform 
questionable diligence with respect to enforcing number policy.
