In general, I support the new fee schedule.  There is one area which I 
believe needs consideration.  For the smallest end-user (1 IPv4, 1 ASN, 
1 IPv6) their registration fees are  going to triple from $100 to $300.  
I don't believe this is the message that ARIN wants to send to the world 
at large and these smallest organizations.  I don't know the number of 
orgs that are subject to this fee increase but my guess is that this is 
a significant number of end-user orgs.

My suggestion for end-users would be the first 3 records per org-id are 
$100, then $100 for additional records.
