It would not look like lobbying or promotion.

One thing that is within ARIN's scope would be to operate a public
issue-tracking system for IPv6. This would allow anyone to raise an
issue that is making it impossible or hard to deploy IPv6. The tracker
would allow reporting of progress towards a solution and also help to
collect information that will be useful to deployers. Some of the issues
will name names, i.e. vendor X's box fails to properly handle situation
Y or Windows Vista does not do DNS queries over IPv6. It would have to
be moderated so that all issues are factual and clearly stated.

I believe that the existence of such a tracker would lead to more people
working on fixing the issues sooner.
