ok, first of all, basing a billing model on the soon-to-be-obsolete-anyway ipv4, is completely retarded and a waste of time, secondly, keep in mind that most of the "big ipv4 players" are PRE-RIR LEGACY blocks anyway, they don't pay anything in the current model anyway, either with arin or with ripe. (registered < 1995) all of the big (firewalled) office networks at multinationals, etc which is where most of the ipv4 space is wasted. furthermore, the "e-class" space is completely unused (244/8 upwards) "experimental use" (just take what you want?!) if you want to recover ipv4 addresses, have a looksie at the 6 or so DoD ranges which are not announced -at all- except for a single /23 or so :P, and at companies like ford and other ones that have /8's.. within the RIPE region, several multinationals with pre-rir larger blocks come to mind (we won't mention names, but a lot of them are not even routed, and if they're routed, they could just as well use NAT ;) but personally, i neither see any reason to change the billing model to "conserve ipv4 space", nor to "recover" ipv4 addresses, nor to keep it artificially alive in any other way... you have ipv6, now use it. if you "need" ipv4, you can just take some of the "e-class" space for all i'm concerned and announce it, for such a short period of time between all access networks being -forced- to support ipv6 by their customer base and google and facebook and akamai and the likes -finally- switching on ipv6 permanently, i'm quite sure the internet can survive on that unregulated stuff. (after a while, nobody wants ipv4 anymore anyway, as there is no need for it anymore the moment the major content parties also figure it out) -- Greetings, Sven Olaf Kamphuis, CB3ROB Ltd. & Co.
