If a business can’t afford to may market price for addresses, they don’t have as much need for them as someone who can, and shouldn’t expand that part of their business. If an organization has addresses that they have a stronger economic incentive to hold than to free up and sell/lease, then we shouldn’t be trying to find policy levers to force them to do something (economically) inefficient.
