What Should an Engineer Address when 'Selling' IPv6 to Executives?

Cameron - 
  I agree with the intent, but just for clarity, I'd like to ask what you mean 
  by "the black market"?  I see two possibilities, one being that the current 
  IPv4 address transfer regime is viewed as "illegitimate' (which would be the 
  typical use of the term 'black market'); or secondly, that the current IPv4
  transfer system is fine but likely won't meet one's requirements for growth 
  and hence may require turning to transfers "outside the system", i.e. truly 
  to an underground black market... 

  I can see reasons to assert either view, but figured other folks might also 
  be wondering which of these two potential points you are making... :-)
