Thank you for the information.  It is useful and I appreciated the details.

Sorry for the delay in putting this information together...

I need to preface by noting that there is a distinct difference between how
many member are in a given registration services category versus how many
members are paying fees _because they are in that category_. We charge based
the larger of the IPv4 size and IPv6 size category fee, so many
organizations with both resources are simply paying the generally larger
IPv4 registration services fees.

So, of the 4109 members with registration services, they break down as
following with respect to registration services size category based on their
IPv4 resource holdings:

x-small: 1,229   
  small: 1,902
 medium:   625
  large:   103
x-large:    72
Total  = 3,931 members with IPv4 registration services. 

With respect to just their IPv6 resource holdings:

x-small:     7   (smaller than /40 - critical inf.)
  small: 1,573   (/40 to /32)
 medium:    37   (/31 to /30)
  large:    29   ...
x-large:     8
xx-large:    1
Total  = 1,655 members with IPv6 registration services.

If you want to look at the full categories or associated fees, go here:

As noted, most members are paying based on their IPv4 category, as their
IPv6 fee is smaller.  This means that when it comes to actual registration
services fees billed, the distribution is as follows:

 Xtra Large  =    72
 Large       =   103
 Medium      =   625
 Small       = 1,902
 Xtra Small  =   995
 Small       =   406    
 Medium      =     2
 Large       =     3
 XX Large    =     1
Total        = 4,109 Members with registration services.

Of the 406 members paying IPv6 small category, 234 were IPv4 x-small member
who ended up to paying slightly more ($438) in 2011 as IPv6 waiver went from
50% to %25. Rather than have this happen again in 2012, the Board opted to
maintain the 25%
IPv6 fee waiver (it was originally scheduled to phase out as
100/75/50/25/0 over 2008 through 2012.)  The exercise before all of us is to
determine an appropriate long-term fee schedule that recognizes over time
the member change from IPv4 to IPv6.

So, this is probably more a little more information than you wanted, but
hopefully should help with the discussion.
