[ppml] IPv6 incentive policy

Are you sure #9 is the most important? I thought it was #10. :-)
I'm also interested to know what the units of D are. You said the
"number of delays". I think you meant days, but in that case D would
always be 1 until C got larger than F. Perhaps you meant for D to be
measured in years, such that if F is 100x as big as C, you'd have a
delay of .01 years (3.65 days)?
