[arin-discuss] Encouraging IPv6 Transition (From PPML)

Four ideas to promote IPv6 deployment, for your consideration and discussion:

1) Make it as easy as possible for an org who actually wants IPv6 to
get it. This is mostly in place today (allocation fee waivers, one
maint. fee per Org ID, ease of qualification, etc.) but there is still
some possible room for improvement:
   1A) Waive IPv6 assignment fees for end-users who request both IPv4
and IPv6 simultaneously.
   1B) Move the </40 small/x-small threshold to <=/48.

2) Provide additional motivation for orgs to request and deploy IPv6.
There are several top of mind methods to accomplish this:
   2A) Require the officer attestation to acknowledge the current
state of affairs regarding IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 requirements.
   2B) Continue or even ramp up (especially targeting end users) ARINs
outreach efforts (which have been substantial in previous years but
are being wound down post IANA-exhaustion).
