Ok.  I think that by simply preventing anyone who doesn't qualify for IPv4
PI space from getting IPv6 PI space, we reduce the number of possible
allocations sufficiently.  IOW, my biggest concern is
IPv6-PI-for-everyone, not simply giving IPv6 PI space to anyone who
qualifies for IPv4 PI space.

And if that's what it takes to get it passed, I'll support it, since we
can always make the policy more liberal later (whereas it's hard to make
it more conservative later).

Ditto for /19's or whatever the consensus is...
