I respectfully disagree. Given that folks who receive IPv6 PI space
have to pay for it and have to continue paying for it year after year
regardless of whether they use it, selling it to them does at least
one bleeding thing: it creates customers who are motivated to select
dual stack vendors in preference to IPv4-only vendors.
