Owen - 

 Your math appears correct.  Unless you are expecting IPv4
 address block returns, it would be unlikely to affect total
 receipts aside from the initial change with IPv6 x-small. 
 In effect, the IPv4 fee schedule would always dominate, thus
 making IPv6 "free" for those with IPv4 registration services.
 Let me know if you need any additional information.
