I see. So if you tell the customer that they need to renumber, then they
tell you to stuff it and switch to a new provider who... tells them that
they must renumber out of your soon-to-be-reassigned address space.

I just don't see this as a realistic example of a situation in which a
renumbering ISP is at a severe business disadvantage. In fact I can't
remember ever seeing any such realistic example nor do I ever remember
hearing of a case in which an ISP lost a significant amount of business
because of renumbering.
