That's not a lease, in the sense that's of concern. "Downstream" implies
a connection. Let's call that "rent".
ISPs "rent" IP blocks all the time - even for their own customers.
$10/mo for a static IP address instead of a DHCP assigned one - a
practice as old as the hills.
And business-based Internet is almost always a statically assigned CIDR
subnet - for example one client of mine assigns a /29 for free, and
charges an additional $1/ip for larger networks. That's rent. (ya I
know, IANAL and the acronym speaks volumes)
Seems to me the thing that's got everyone tied in a knot is the idea of
allowing someone to lease out a wait-listed network to someone with whom
YOU HAVE NO OTHER BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP.
How to define that? Maybe "arm's length".....
