I believe it is clear and removes many areas of ARINs conservative 
interpretations. It provides a proper justification for IPv6 for initial 
allocation without an IPv4 dependency, supports nibble alignments, 
future planning, and sub-delegated ISP space. It keeps initial 
allocations aligned with the same procedure as subsequent allocations. 
It stops provider assignment crunch which doesn't support growth. 
Finally, it gives providers a set of allocation/assignment rules which 
are aligned exactly with what ARIN will use (with a liberal enough 
allocation framework, that differing from the policy mechanisms is 
possible so long as it's within the space justified by the mechanism).
