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

I want to reinforce Leo's point this policy effects the LIR/ISP 
allocations within the NRPM.  The title of this proposal is 
slightly unfortunate as it doesn't include that bit of information.

Within the Advisory Council, I am working on the companion 
part of this that would deal with direct End User assignments 
from ARIN, and dis-associate the dependence of having an 
IPv4 assignment from ARIN with the IPv6 assignment policy.

We need a new stewardship model for IPv6.  In IPv4 we have 
had a manage limited resources version of stewardship.  Only 
give out a little bit at a time, and make you justify more. 

We should use the IPv4 stewardship model for IPv6,  So I want 
to the ask a more general question; "What is the right 
stewardship model for IPv6?"  Does the same model work for 
ISP/LIRs and End Users?

I will redouble my efforts this weekend and get a proposal out 
for the IPv6 End User section of the NRPM early next week.  

But, I must have some time to play with the new MacBook Pro 
my desktop/laptop support guy just dropped off in my cube 10 
minutes ago.  

WOO HOO! :-)
