I've been following this discussion for a while and at first I thought the 
proposal might have some merit in trying to prevent the feared 
'train-wreck'.  However, as written it seems to me that all it really does 
is cause the RIRs and it's members to expend a quite a bit of time and 
energy to take non-trivial measures to extend the life of a protocol that 
already has a suitable substitute.  That time and energy would be better 
spent on IPv6 transition efforts.  I don't see this as an impending 
train-wreck but rather an old car about to run out of gas while there is a 
newer, more capable car with a more abundant fuel source ready to take 
it's place.  We don't need to take extraordinary measures to banish the 
old car from the highway.  Just park it, get in the new car and move on.
