This is an excellent question.

I wonder why we are considering making policy without first
sending a letter to the major vendors asking them for their 
public comments on the route scaling problem. This is an
area in which we don't have to fly blind.

Let's ask ARIN staff to send an open letter to the major 
vendors and ask for their answers prior to making any
policy decision on v6 PI addressing.
