I disagree. While the waitlist may help companies offer
competitive services for their product lines, it should not be the
"product" itself. I.e. the offering of IP services should be coupled with
the actual offering of services.

To point, if companies offer connectivity-related services, such as, but
not limited to, hosting, transit, data transit, and ISP, I don't have an
issue as these are in the spirit of what IP resources should be
obtained for.

Obtaining IP resources for the purposes of immediately reselling or leasing
them to companies is not in the spirit of ARIN's policies.

The waitlist should not be designed for companies simply to make money by
"waiting" in line as a spot holder than reselling the IP addresses.
