While I generally agree, there is one subtle difference between a
hypothetical IPv6 giveaway and the legacy IPv4 space: current IPv6
recipients will only receive such space from an RIR, and presumably
will have signed an RSA in order to do so.

That doesn't change the argument much, but it might be an important
difference at some future time.
