I was motivated by it and even ended up moving primarily to IPv6 over v4. However, with the proposed policy my fees will be $2k based on my default /32 allocation instead of my v4 allocation which would be $1k. Price was almost the sole factor for me to use v6 because I could not 'even now' have monetized the increased fees for a v6 block. The other factor was simply an engineering curiosity one.

So if people weren't motivated by the discount-all-the-way-to-free, nor by the phasing-out of the discount over several years, do you really think they'd be motivated by it being discounted _again_, when they weren't the first time?

Our policies are lousy with such loopholes, and our pricing was as well. This pricing doesn't entirely fix the problem, but it certainly makes a good step in the right direction.
