Just for thought....
Lets say in the future (5 years from now), the entire world has
switched over to IPv6 and IPv4 is completely dead in the public space.
Since v6 space is so huge and abundant, the fees by Arin, Apnic,
etc.,. should be almost nothing compared to what they are now since
the effort to manage and give it out will be minimal. The blocks are
so large, that 99% of Orgs would request one block, and never ever
need to make another request again. So the number of support tickets
by Arin for resource requests would be a fraction of what they are
now. Not to mention, there wont be as many small multi-homed ISP's
applying since getting IP space from upstreams will no longer be
This means in the future that bodies like Arin will get smaller, with
less staff, and a much smaller operating budget.
Hmmm, maybe this is why IPv4 is still around, and will remain for a
very very long time.
Heck, if we can upgrade every computers OS for Y2K, we can switch the
world over to IPv6 and kill v4 once and for all.
