You have quoted the "Reply Comments of the Library
Associations" which is a wish list, not the law. The
law is going to shaped by various cases, but it's
clear that the notion that all copies made under
permission are subject to first-sale is unlikely to
be correct.

For example, various services exist which permit the
downloading of songs, and set a limit on the number
of devices to which that song may be copied. I don't
believe that the courts will hold that each such copy
becomes separately subject to first-sale permission.
