[arin-ppml] Policy Experience Report Working Group Leasing Question

The problem is that some genuine market participants may be unable to
afford the market rate, thus stifling potential market entry or innovation.

I am not necessarily against this idea as long as there are appropriate
ways to preserve market entry for new entrants without. I am not
necessarily saying this needs to be free; however, promoting
competitiveness in space should be a factor. What I'd suggest we'd see is
continued consolidation of IP resources. Quite frankly, if this model were
adopted with no waitlist, it would not be surprising if a venture capital
fund came in and just started buying IP space to reduce supply and control
the price.

If that's what we want as a community, then so be it. *My recommendation is
to eliminate IP leasing or transfer entirely for any space obtained from
the waitlist.* If customers want a /24 or larger, they go to ARIN, get
their own space, and go through the appropriate justification process. The
ISP can then announce that IP space on their behalf.

If a member is not using their IP space for public routing for a period of
time that ARIN should reclaim space in accordance with standard policies.
