I'm sure at least some of those factions pretend it doesn't because admitting
it does would be a game changer.  I'm sure that *somebody* has a business model
that assumes the non-existence of the speculatie market.  And everybody knows
that you never admit the business model is crap until *after* the IPO. ;)

I admit it exists, but, I think it is currently relatively small and would hate to provide
it any additional incentives to grow. I think it has the potential to be very harmful
to the IPv4 internet in general. As long as it is relatively small, it's like a mosquito.
Turning it into a B-17 would be bad.

Just my $0.02.
