There's several issues I've mentioned that don't all directly have to do with getting IPv6 broadly accepted.

1. If we are going to have a linear fee structure it should be equitable all the way up the scale. Right now it isn't by any measure.
2. Removing ARIN and service providers as a barrier to business. Fees is one barrier and that's the topic of this discussion. Right now because of the fee structure deck is severely stacked against people starting up.
3. If the fees are equitable across the board assuming they stay revenue neutral for ARIN it will lower the fees for all but 73 originations encouraging adoption.
4. Is a policy one I've mentioned but this can be addressed through the policy suggestion process that John has mentioned. I saw someone make a suggestion earlier that was great to address this.
