What if we break this up into two policies?  One could be along the lines
of what Andrew proposed at the beginning of this thread, and would give
IPv6 PI space to those who have (or qualify for) IPv4 PI space.  IMO this
is urgent, and should be done at Montreal if possible.

A second policy could then be discussed regarding giving IPv6 PI space to
those without IPv4 PI space.  IMO this is a little less urgent given the
small number of IPv6-only networks out there, but no less important in the
long term.
