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.

FYI - We will shortly generate some numbers regarding financial
aspects of this type of change.
