For what it's worth, the Denver meeting seemed to agree with you.  The 
meeting transcript reads:

"On the assumption that ARIN continues work on the policy proposal and
maintains a need-based qualification of recipients, all those in favor
of an effective date sooner than the IANA IPv4 free pool depletion,
raise your hand. ... On the matter of an earlier effective date than the
IPv4 depletion date, in favor, 35; opposed, 13. This information will be
provided to the AC for their consideration."

So, perhaps the question should be: what would be a better "earlier 
effective date"?
