I think you just identified a missing carrot. What if we make a policy
proposal along these lines:
Any holder of a direct IPv4 assignment/allocation (including pre-ARIN
assignments) who would like IPv6 PI space, but doesn't qualify under
18.104.22.168 today, could get an IPv6 PI /48 by signing an RSA (if they
haven't already done so), and demonstrating efficient usage of their
The actual policy changes could be as simple as updating the wording in
22.214.171.124 to read "qualify for an IPv4 assignment or allocation from ARIN
under the IPv4 policy currently in effect, or demonstrate efficient
utilization of a direct IPv4 assignment or allocation covered by a
current ARIN RSA."
Would you support such a policy proposal? Do you think it would provide
a useful means for legacy holders to migrate to IPv6? Do you think the
requirements are reasonable enough that legacy holders like yourself
would take ARIN up on the offer? Would you/they be willing to sign an
RSA and demonstrate efficient utilization of existing space (or renumber
and return unused space) in order to get provider independence in IPv6?
