Has this been discussed here?  I did a quickie search and saw nothing.  Other than spam to a technical mailing list, do you guys care, or is it a non-issue?

With the address pool exhausted in APNIC for regular allocations,
service providers will need a way to acquire additional address blocks
for deployment; by discovering resources that are currently unused
(or can be released by the current user with sufficient effort).

In order to promote such address transfers, we are offering the
Asia-Pacific region a platform, at


While this platform is designed to ultimately allow transfer of
addresses within and across all regions of the world, we expect
that interest within the APNIC community will be largest, hence
this announcement.
