    We really need to "eat" the existing IPv4 up quickly (in a

If we did what you have suggested above, we would end up starving so bad
and while starving, the IPv$ brokers would swing in so fast and dictate
the price of the readily available yet  much needed IPv4 space.

Starve - or change your diet - to IPv6.

There appears to be very little incentive to change attitudes and adopt
IPv6. If the IPv$ brokers arrive with high prices, people might just
start to notice the alternative.
