Would someone please explain to me why in gods name ARIN thinks they need
to continue the IP justification anal-probes into v6? Is there some 
pre-planned v6 shortage I'm not aware of?

I am completely appalled that as an early adopter applying for v6 
space, one would be required to provide topologies and plans to make 200 
assignments. Let's be realistic, in the US there aren't tons of people 
willing to pay for v6 services right now.

Maybe we should try putting the horse before the cart here?
