Hi Paul,

You know that I have great respect for you. But it is because of
IPv6's eventual inevitability that I believe it entirely reasonable to
shift ARIN's cost burden on to non-IPv6 adopters until IPv6 has enough
oomph behind it to pay for itself. Which it doesn't today. And won't
for a while yet.

There are half a dozen credible reasons an organization may elect not
to pursue IPv6 this year. Why permit ARIN fees to be one of them?
