I'm not strongly opposed to this point, however I question it's
value. ARIN implemented a $100 maintenance fee I believe largely
as a yearly "touch point" after previous expereince with no-fee
resources lead to many out of date records. I'm totally down with
waving initial fees and maybe even a year or two, but I can't imagine
$100 going forward makes a big difference to anyone.

I'd roll #1 and #2 into "Pays no fees for two years." Short, simple.
Again though, not enough to make me not support the proposal.

I strongly object to giving out any new resource that is not covered
by an RSA. That's a deal breaker for me.

I really like the concept here of finding a way to provide an
incentive to turn in old space for newer, more aggregateable, more
usable (IPv6) going forward. However I feel very strongly we need
RSA's in place for new resources, the lack of one was a major
mistaken in the past we can't repeat.
