Well… If you can get language saying that into the NRPM, we can discuss it, but for now, as proposed, it’s a problem.
> 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.
rent and lease are synonyms.
DHCP leases addresses. Nowhere have I ever seen a “DHCP rental”.
If a provider is providing addresses to their downstream customers without additional charge for them, can you really still call that a rental?
You can call it a lease.

I really didn’t need the primer on how current IP services work at the consumer level. I’ve been doing this for quite some time and am pretty well familiar with the industry.
Seems to me the thing that’s got everyone tied in a not is the incredibly finite nature of IPv4 and a desire not to cope with the real problem at hand — People who haven’t yet adopted IPv6.
