Doesn't this create a great deal of problems with organizations that
provide IP service, but that are in one way or another "forbidden" to
buy shares? They would be forced to relinquish their influence on the
RIPE NCC activities, and would have to buy service from a monoply
organization. Not in line with Internet thinking, I would say ...
