While the text of the proposal simply says "IP addresses", the title
implies that it should only affect IPv4 addresses and I would expect the
AC to make that editorial change.

With that assumption, I do not see how this could possibly affect IPv6
deployments, by "critical infrastructure" folks or anyone else for that
matter.  Could you explain your thinking on that?

I do see a potential problem that CI folks may not be able to get any
IPv4 space at all after exhaustion, and I would be interested in a
proposal to set aside some space for them, but I don't think that this
is the right thread to address that.
