I agree. We need more examples of IPv6 best practices to show that IPv6
really is different and you have fundamentally reexamine all your
practices when you deploy IPv6.

I copied your words and put it here on ARIN's IPv6 Wiki

Now if only the ARIN staff would get off their butts and maintain the
home page, it might encourage more people to get involved in adding
content to the Wiki.

Mailing lists are fine, but the good content tends to get lost in a sea
of trivia.
