Technically, if you want a global policy, you have to get the same
wording accepted in all 5 RIRs. Therefore ARIN is a reasonable place to
start. But, since the ARIN region has the most legacy allocations, ARIN
is absolutely the right place to introduce it. Any wording that gets
accepted here will likely be rubber-stamped by the other 4 regions with
few legacy holders in them.

MPLS with 6PE is another way to go. Even just running Teredo services or
6to4 relays are a good first step for many ISPs. There are many paths to

Aside from the abusive language, this forum is for people not companies.
Typically, companies will apply for allocations and implement IPv6, not
the PEOPLE who participate in this forum.
