Huh? I quote from your document:

   ARIN shall recommend that all native IPv6 providers implement a 6to4 
   encapsulating router and a 2002::/16 route within their networks.

What business is it of ARIN to dictate operational details to ISPs? This
is not within ARIN's charter.

Not to mention the fact that *NOBODY* has the right to dictate what
technology will be used to transition to IPv6. There is a whole
smorgasbord of technologies defined by the IETF because everybody's
needs are different. Not all IP internetworks are connected to either
the IPv4 Internet or the IPv6 Internet. One size does *NOT* fit all.

This is a total waste of ARIN's time.

If you want to discuss transition best practices, then I suggest that
you do it at a NANOG meeting or else organize your own forum for this
such as MAAWG has done for their special interest area.
