 I know it is public info but what is AIRN,s yearly cost of operation?  And  
how much money did AIRN take in last year. This would be usefull info  
reguarding this discussion.

Well, we have to have X-small and Small categories, right?

And somebody suggested to put IPv6 category limits on nibble boundaries  
(divisible by 4.)

So, I see those action points:

1) consider whether ARIN can afford to lose $400K right now (with potential  
to lose more in 2013.)
2) if 1 is yes - move on adjusting fee for Small category now to march  
X-small IPv4 (see impact above.)
3) optional - introduce X-Small IPv6 at /36 and set its fees to match  
X-small IPv4, adjusting Small IPv6 up - from Jan1,2013.
4) optional - revise other IPv6 boundaries - probably does not really have  
big fiscal impact, and deserves separate discussion.

Now, I guess we can all benefit from John Curran opinion on point 1, at
