I will bet anyone reading this $ 20 USD right now that what will actually happen is the development of a spot market in IPv4 address space.

That's a sucker bet.

What's worse is that unless people start changing their tune soon and make the ownership of IP space official, this will be a black market (like it is now, just much bigger).
But that will end as soon as interdomain routing is protected by certificates given out by the RIRs.
