Perhaps  ARIN should reserve the  last /8 it gets,  and make a rule to
 only allocate any space from it   to organizations  are able to
demonstrate some
reasonable level of  permanent IPv6 connectivity,  and still want the
IPs  12 months after applying ---  in other words, a 12 months delay
to get IPv4 addresses.  :)

Applicants who request an allocation at the time no other addresses
are available will be informed that  the requested addresses are
generally unavailable,    they may request an IPv6  address assignment

And if  20%  IPv6  isn't met within 12 months,   then they will
receive IPv4 addresses from the /8,  to the extent available,  without
an additional cost.

With requests sorted in order of size  (and requests for the smallest
amounts of addresses being answered first,  in a randomized order)
