I don't think you need government taxing for that. I think that the IPv4 trading market we're about to see appear will resolve that issue very quickly. Either you can afford it, or you can't.

What happens if folks can somehow obtain IPv4 address blocks but the cumulative route load from all of these non-hierarchical blocks prevents ISP's from routing them?

Presumably, the folks with the non-hierarchical address space that might get filtered would have potentially limited connectivity (as opposed to no connectivity if they didn't have IPv4 addresses).
