Further, IPv6 is for more than the Internet.
Address space != default-free-zone-router slot.
Enterprises need IPv6 space for use internally (they might have PA
addresses as well). ULA won't cut it in a big organization.
Products/systems often need IPv6 space for use *inside-the-chassis*
** But, for now, the policy says that you can't have it unless you have two

-> Fine, but don't tie IPv6 pricing to IPv4 scarcity.
(If people are worried about DFZ routing slots, then find a way to write
olicy to discourage the piles of IPv4/24s that pollute the table)
