I would actively support a new change which makes the fee structure more fair, but keeps the fee changes neutral for any organization which wasn't targeted for fixing 'unfairness' before.
In short, I believe that most organizations do not require a fee decrease, and that additional revenue could be used to help ARIN finish/start projects which have been on the to-do list for many, many years.

So I wouldn't consider this an overall fee reduction, but I do believe it makes the fee structure more fair, and better aligns the self-interest of ARIN members with the various interests of the community.
