They would be immediately working those requirements if they could see
very clearly that at a future date they would be unable to get IP
addresses due to not meeting those requirements.

However....   ARIN should not necessarily dictate IPv6,  only
"something like IPv6". Any plan that acts like "IPv6 deployment" and
reduces the need for future IPv4 addresses will do.

Perhaps a proposal more along the lines of:

"Obtain a delegation of IPv6 address space and utilize it on your network
OR  present   an alternative plan to eliminate or reduce the need for
future allocations of IPv4 address space
on your network, and  sign a commitment  to return at least  50% of
the newly allocated IPv4 allocation to ARIN within 5 years."
