If there are not enough incentives already let's create more then. We, as a
community in a bottom up process as responsible for creating them based on
what is right and fair to most people.

Use the excuse that the broker market is happing is not enough to try
pretend things like leasing is a correct thing. It is not and will never
be, despite the need some may have. It is fundamentally wrong allow assign
addresses to those who can pay more rather than necessarily to those who
justify for them.

We, as a community can adjust the rules in order to create more incentives
for unused spaces to be returned to ARIN so it can reassign to those who
really justify and will use them to build real Internet, based on fair and
neutral rules not just to speculate and profit from it.
We can have all the basis to support ARIN legally to revoke unused space
that to be returned therefore if it is not in use (being leased for
example) then it must be returned.

Doesn't matter if that ended up happing here and there. If that is morally
wrong, a distrotion to the system and should not been done then any
necessary policy to support ARIN to revoke addresses where necessary and
reassign to those who really justify should be created for that.
We cannot prentend that is fine just because some a minority still beleive
it should be allowed to profit from something someone doesn't own and that
is in need for others to fulfil its main propose and build Internet.
