There's an important element here that we may have overlooked; "critical services" and "critical infrastructure" globally.
There are set of folks around the globe that do need priority in the allocations. And despite some of their best intentions and work, they have not been able to yet get budget allocations from their sponsors (enterprises or governments where politics/budget must be worked) to migrate their services to IPv6.
I don't claim to know how to adjudicate the need; just that it will exist.
