[ppml] v6 PI space and Edu

I don't know the current status of v6 deployments of universities and other edu orgs around the region, but it certainly would be helpful to encouraging deployment if v6 was available to all those students with too much time on their hands.   :)

Under the current v6 allocation scheme it would be unlikely that a university could get a direct ARIN allocation unless the operated a "network" that served served multiple customers.  I can think of a number of university network groups that would qualify, but I doubt that all will.

Seems to me that it only makes sense to promote v6 deployments in edu, if that means 1 prefix in the routing table for each major university that seems reasonable to me.
Perhaps the "breakthrough app" for North America would come from there...
