When that consensus was achieved, there were rapid/easy renumbering features
and other capabilities being proposed in IPv6 which have since been removed.
Those features were what made non-PI space acceptable to multihomed 
end-sites.
Since they have been removed, current IPv6 implementations do not make
PA space as palatable to a large portion of organizations, and, as such,
the needs of the community have changed.  This is an attempt to change
ARIN policy in recognition of those changing needs.
