Orgs efficiently using private AS numbers would qualify for IPv6 PI
under 2007-21. As I understand your suggested modification, they would
not qualify since they don't hold an ARIN assigned AS number. They
would qualify for an AS number so they could get that first and then
get IPv6 PI space, but why make an extra hurdle and spend an extra AS
number with extra record-keeping?
