There is no danger of IPv6 addresses running out anytime soon.

ARIN cannot set routing policy because it doesn't run the routers. But
ARIN can and should understand how our policies impact routing.

P.S. the reason that some of us write IPv4 and IPv6 all the time is to
make it clear what type of IP addresses are under discussion. If you
check the subject line of your message, it says IPv6 but in your text
you don't mention either IPv4 or IPv6.
