Officially: nope.  Not IANA's job to have views on that particular  
issue in my opinion.

I personally have a view, but that's just me.

The reason I asked the question is that it sometimes appears that  
folks assume the Internet will grind to a halt when the last v4 /8 is  
allocated so we must deploy IPv6 at all costs.  I would be curious to  
see what people think.  In particular (and in keeping with the  
charter of this mailing list), I would be interested in hearing what  
the public policy implications are of events of v4 free space  
depletion (at 11:11 GMT Dec 12, 2012 I assume :-)).

My opinions are my own and do not necessarily represent the
opinions of any organization I may be a part of.  So there.
