Yes.

Sign me up.  As a vendor.  I'd love to over-charge for the dead simple
task of using an API to push DNS delegation updates to the IN-ADDR
servers, and running a whois server.

My guess is that lacking a monopoly, if you over-charge you won't have many customers.

Meanwhile, under the current system, ARIN has managed to accumulate a >$25M cash reserve despite an increasing budget.
