I think the IPv4 Soft Landing proposal is the least objectionable of
the array of similar proposals. That said, I'm still on the fence in
terms of support. I'm not yet convinced that there's a need to "ease"
the transition. My crystal ball is very fuzzy on that topic - current
policy isn't horribly broken for IPv4. Once it runs out, it runs out.
Does it matter if that happens slower as a result of policy changes?
We need to get onto IPv6 sooner, rather than later, but I'm not sure
how related that is to IPv4 runout. It's clear that running out will
trigger much more interest in v6. I'm more inclined to push for more
education about how to use v6 and the impending doom for v4, and let
the community do the right thing from there. Again, that doesn't
involve policy changes.
To answer Bill's original question, I think I don't support any of
these proposals at this time, but I'm not yet firm on that decision.
If someone convinces me that we do need to change policy, I think I
would support this proposal over the other similar ones.
