I agree as well. We have a /22 IPv4 and have looked at getting IPv6 for
the upcoming growth. The costs makes leasing IP space from upstreams
that much more enticing. However, we all prefer to have a direct

We are also in complete agreement with this and would like ARIN to
accommodate an extra small fee schedule for holders of IPv6 initial

By the way, I'd like to draw your attention to the fact that that
currently an ISP which has an allocation of a /22 of IPv4 space
(extra-small) that gets the default-smallest-ISP-allocation of IPv6
address space (a /32) suddenly becomes "small" - which results in
their yearly ARIN fees doubling.  $1250/year may not sound like a lot,
but when you're an organization of that size every penny is watched
carefully and it can be a tough sell to management, who may not see
the cost/benefit proposition.

It would be Extra Nice if the new fee schedule addressed the Extra
Small problem.
