if the ipv4 free pool run-out produces a lot of address shifting and
recycling of old address space, will there be a market in clean-up
services such as the above.  give them your newly-acquired address space
for two months before you need to use it, and they will test and scrub
and write and beg and whine on nanog?  it could be that one or two
reputable clean-up folk could develop history with the various blockers
and be able to get the job done better than we could do it ourselves.
