[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2010-8: Rework of IPv6 assignment criteria - adopted

Fees are not directly a policy issue.

However, I would hope the Board could find a way to minimize any early 
adopter tax, as one might refer to this issue if one were so inclined. 
That said, there still probably needs to be some additional fee, 
additional work will be done.

Here is a simple idea;

If an end-user organization that already received an IPv6 assignment and 
is eligible to receive a larger assignment with this new policy, their 
fee will be the larger of $500 or the difference between what their new 
fee would have been and their original fee, if the new assignment is 
processed before December 31, 2011.

Just an idea;

We should probably discuss this issue related to Draft Policy 2011-3: 
Better IPv6 Allocations for ISPs, as well.  There is likely to be a 
similar issue with that policy too.

We are an end-user, so we paid the fee for the /48 upfront, and just pay the maintenance fee. The initial fee is the same for a /48 or /44. If the policy were in place before, we would have just gotten the /44 to begin with. Do we have to pay the fee again to expand the /48 into a /44 ?
