As with IPv4, the "easily obtainable" way for an organization to get
IPv6 address space that doesn't currently qualify for an ISP
allocation, is to get the address space from their upstream.  Once
the organization grows and can qualify for their own allocation from
ARIN, they can apply for one and renumber their network. 

There is also the IPv6 End-User allocation, which is a viable
option as well (and we didn't really have this in IPv4, AFAIK,
except for the micro / experimental allocations, which I did not see
used much in practice)
