note, this thread has nothing to do with any policy proposal and as such,
probably ought to be on arin-discuss@ rather than ppml at .  for the benefit
of those who are subscribed here but not there, who may be following it,
i am honouring the existing CC: header.  but at some point we ought to
pare down ppml@ to actual policy proposals rather than general discussion.

i've likewise heard randy bush's claim (most recently at the chicago IEPG
meeting) that public funding has helped push IPv6 deployment in asia.  am
i to assume that the "public funding" mechanism being recommended here is
a "sin tax" administered by ARIN?  (that feels like mission creep, but
before i say whether i think it's good or bad, i'd like to be sure i'm
understanding what's been suggested.)
