You seem to be assuming that because ARIN is "behind" the other
regions in terms of IPv6 deployment, something must be broken in the
current ARIN policies. I would like to question that assertion, in the
spirit of "let's not try fixing things until we're sure they are
really broken".

I would turn the question around and ask whether folk seriously
believe the current policies are in fact preventing folk who are
serious about deploying IPv6 from getting the address space needed to
do so.  And if so, what aspect of the policy is at issue.
