This seems to be an argument not against the proposed annual fee change, but against the current and existing price for IPv6 allocations. I don't think this is relevant to the current conversation (because I didn't observe much if any change in the pricing at registration time) however I'd like to state for the record that I would officially support a policy proposal that offered a discount period for IPv6 registrations in order to increase uptake.

* obviously this would require considerable number crunching to make sure it's plausible with ARIN's budget.
