Step up to actively increase participation, both from outside the LIR community and within.
Worth a try, I suppose (if the community is willing to pay for it). My impression is that the RIRs have been actively trying to do this sort of thing for years with limited success. I would be surprised if more thrust on this vector appreciably changes anything, but I've (often) been wrong before.
the RPKI should not be voluntary and RIRs (or companion organisations to maintain a registry/regulator split) should become addressing police officers using the RPKI sanction to keep people in line.
Given discussions I've seen in other venues, I suspect this is going to be ... challenging.
On the pricing change, I would be curious to know how you think that might emerge by itself?
Well, there is http://www.tradeipv4.com/ and the Microsoft purchase of the Nortel blocks for $11/address via addrex.net set an early benchmark. I imagine that as ISPs in the AP region draw down there existing reserves, a robust market will develop. Since there is limited supply and demand is increasing, the price for addresses will likely climb fairly rapidly.
The people I see who most would like to get involved in numbering policy but can't for reasons of resources or accessibility are LE, regulators, governments etc. Add those to the mix and yes the landscape will change.
Could you clarify the 'reasons of resources or accessibility'?
