As a matter of fact, I do.

The ARIN public policy mailing list, as far as I know, is to discuss
policy, not solutions.

Not because the policy is not good. Because the protocol is unfinished,
which combined with other factors leads to the most important reason
that there is zero customer demand.

The sad truth is that in North America today I have zero use for IPv6.
As a customer or a netizen, I don't have a reason to upgrade. This is
not because the ARIN policy is flawed, this is because of a combination
of factors such as sluggish connectivity, IPv6 services inexistent or
not better than IPv4, lack of a multihoming solution, etc.
