Hi Everyone, Chuck precisely makes one of my points here.
When I voted against this concept last time around, I felt just like Ted.
 Like, you're not a real ISP or player if you don't have 200 customers.
But there are real ISPs that are small that deserve the minimum allocation
of IPv6 just as much as the 200+ers.
If we want everyone participating in IPv6, we must make sure they can get it
- especially ISPs, large and small.
