Hi William,

You're darn right we do. The problem is, ARIN has only three
posessions it -can- offer as incentives.

1. Discounts on the fees
2. IP addresses
3. T-shirts and baubles

ARIN has already discounted the fees to zero. It improved the IPv6
uptake rate, but not enough. "I saved the Internet" T-shirts might be
fun way to reward IPv6 registrants but I don't see a gimmick filling
the gap.
