Now I think we are getting in synch.  I don't think this is completely
unreasonable.  And if you charge enough it will help drive an IPng
solution thereby voiding the original value.

Question?  What is the value of something that the govt. granted
you at no cost?  And do you really "own" it or do you simply own the
mineral rights?

These are serious issues.  And the notions of rents etc. all play into
it, especially when you consider things like DHCP leases.

cheers, peter

P.S.  Perhaps this solution will lead to the same checkerboard quilt of
land ownership you see between railroads and the U.S. Forest Service?
Land grants in cyberspace?
