So now we will reap the consequences and it will be at the cost of
new market entrants (which I am sure will please some people) and
perhaps cold hard cash for those who cannot expand their business or
have to 'buy' address space.

New market entrants are the customers of existing operators, so their
plight and the feasibility of being a new market entrant  impacts our
bottom lines.

On the three occasions where I've been involved in running a new market entrant they were not previously a customer of an existing operator (other than the founders having an earlier personal online account with someone or other).

So it's not always a case of an entrant getting started using someone else's IP transit (and IP addressing), then bringing that in-house.
