What's the cost for a /48 GUA from ARIN these days?  Why pay for
something that you're not going to "use"?

I agree with you but as long as the RIRs charge for integers people
will make up their own if they can find a way.

If a small shop guy is looking at ether paying for GUA space or
affording a more expensive switch that will do SNMP, he's going to get
the switch.
