Based on the comments here, I offer up this reworked proposal.  It
includes many of the text changes, limits the scope to
draft-ietf-ipv6-ula-central-00.txt (which I believe is the one more
interesting to ARIN as a group), and includes the major issues that
ARIN, as a group, sees with the proposal.

Draft Text:

  ARIN shall send a letter to the IETF IPv6 Working Group, and any
  other entities the BoT considers relevant, with the following

  ]  ARIN on behalf of the ARIN membership and constituents believes
  ]  that the proposal in draft-ietf-ipv6-ula-central-00.txt will be
  ]  harmful to the future of the IPv6 Internet.  ARIN recommends that
  ]  this draft NOT be adopted by the IETF.
  ]  The particular issues seen by the ARIN membership and constituents
  ]  that relate to ARIN are:
  ]  - The proposal calls for a  a new "RIR" type function by fiat, rather
  ]    than using the existing processes to create these sorts of
  ]    organizations.
  ]  - The proposal calls for an RIR function to be provided at no fee
  ]    to the end user, and with no method of funding the RIR functions.
  ]    ARIN believes the IETF should not discuss fees in engineering
  ]    drafts.
  ]  - The proposal is likely to create confusion in the ARIN region
  ]    about which prefixes can be routed on the Public Internet.
  ]  - If the prefixes in the proposal become globally routed by major
  ]    Public Internet ISP's it has the potential to impact ARIN's
  ]    viability.

Does that language make people a bit happier?
