1- is not resolving .....
2- why would anyone be interested in buying "bit-pipes" from you if you don't own fiber or ports in a switch?
3- why would anyone be interested in buying ip address space if they can do it from SP's themselfs or apply for that ripe allocation?
4- ICIN 2009 highlighted the fact the SP#s are interested in rolling out new ethernet services - that has been happening for the past years!
5- shows the V4 exhaustion - the depletion of the IPv4 allocation pool has been a concern however is still in use. Understanding the v6 migration is driving the change.
just seems that it follows the switchover to digital (2012)

Assuming your ISP is providing your DNS.  What if I, as a new start-up in the IPv4-exhausted world, want to buy pure bit-pipes from my ISP, and be responsible for *everything* further up the stack?  I don't believe this is entirely uncommon.
