At the ARIN meeting, I spoke to a few people who have signed the LRSA,
so I'd like to focus on that side of your comment (Matthew, I'm not
being judgmental on what you have said, nor do I have an opinion on it).

Just for informative purposes, would someone who has signed the LRSA
speak up with any regrets they may have had by signing the agreement?

otoh, I'd be interested to learn of benefits you have gained by not
having to "keep" ... "IPv4 and IPv6 entities sufficiently separate"?
