These two things, either alone, will keep me from being an early
adopter.  Maybe that will be one less early adopter than you had
hoped for.  Or maybe a lot of others won't become early adopters
as a result, either.

I already just made up some IPv6 addresses and started using them
for internal use.  I don't need an allocation from ARIN to do that.
To me, early adoption is for the purpose of easing into real IPv6
deployment.  I certainly don't want a renumbering looking ahead.
If that's the case, then I'll wait for my upstream.  And when they
ask me if I'd like to do IPv6 right now ... well ... they won't ask
so I don't even need to tell you the answer.

If anything, the early adopters should be required to actually be
online and active with their address space as soon as the paths are
open to do so.  And as a reward for meeting that requirement, they
get to keep the address space for as long as they remain actively
connected.  That is opposite of (c) and (d) above.
