    best way to transition to IPv6

    Should we allow people to buy and sell IPv4 addresses?

    One problem is that early on, some large groups got top level
    allocations meaning they are 'sitting' on large ranges of IP addresses
    they will never use.

    Apparently the US has about 5 IPv4 addresses per head of population.
