Last I checked, the waiver doesn't apply to assignments. So for those of 
us who aren't an ISP, trying to convince the people that control the 
money to spend *any* dollar amount on something that's perceived to be 
totally useless could be hard.

Ultimately, if the goal is to encourage IPv6 adoption, the waiver should 
apply to assignments AND allocations. If you ask me, it's the little 
guys like me that are more likely to blaze ahead and deploy IPv6 just 
because we can, but we have to pay higher fees in the beginning.
