We can quibble about semantics, but let's go with your verbiage:

If I run a network and qualify 
for an /18 right now, can I go to ARIN and lease one?   I must either pay someone to release their addresses to ARIN to lease to me or lease one from a (non-ARIN) 3rd party.

And the amount I must pay (commonly referred to as the Purchase Price in most IPv4 transfer contracts, whether I'm technically "buying" it or not), is significantly more than either typical lease rates or ARIN's annual fees.  My point is that 3rd party lessors do provide a service that ARIN does not.

I think you misunderstand the transfer market. You don't buy addresses 
on the transfer market. You lease addresses from ARIN and then pay 
someone on the transfer market to release their addresses to ARIN for 
lease to you.
