While I would generally prefer to keep references to v4 out of v6 
policy, I think this would be useful.  It would simplify the
majority of applications, reducing ARIN staff work.  It would
also lessen the controversey over whatever requirements we set
for non v4 networks.

Do they need to be scaled?  Does anyone have more than 1m subnets
now?

One way to avoid the taint of early v4 delegations is to
make the v4 exception only apply to assignments/allocations
made by ARIN.
