Our views differ in that it is my belief that said truly horrendous and costly mismanagement of IPv4 address space is the norm now and will continue to be the norm for the foreseeable future, absent some positive economic stimulus to do otherwise.

When considering the entire value chain of Internet connectivity, I'm not sure if that's a true statement, or that it will become a true statement in the foreseeable future.

Which is part of the problem.
