I agree with Andrew's views, although I would suggest perhaps 5
records per ORG. Think about it this way.. Small ORG, they instead
have 2 existing IPv4 blocks (which is common), and an ASN. We want
them to encourage them to *adopt* IPv6. In this case, the IPv6 block
would be record number 4, and therefor double the annual maintenance
that the ORG is responsible for.
