[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal: Open Access To IPv6

Hello Everyone,Before we really get started on this policy proposal, I must
give credit where credit is due.
Jordi Palet Martinez brought this topic to the table 3 years ago, and it got
shot down.  I myself, in my small IPv4-centric mind, thought it impossible
that an IPv6 only organization could exist.  Operations and innovation have
shown me the error of our thinking.
To quote myself from a different list:
IPv6 is a new paradigm we are supposed to be doing our best to encourage.
 As it stands, those community guys can't get it, the Caribbean guys can't
get it, and basically anyone trying to do anything vanguard can't get it
either.  (I hear the ULA objections here, even when they're nascent).

We can be afraid of what IPv6 might do to the routing table, or we can
embrace what IPv6 can and will do for the Internet.
I choose the latter and support this proposal.
