This is proposed for section 4 of the NRPM, section 4 only 
deals with IPv4, section 6 only deals with IPv6.  It is only 
policies in the other sections that need to worry about being 
specific about IPv4 or IPv6 if needed as the section they are 
contained in doesn't imply which type of resource we are 
talking about.
