That is perfectly correct David I also support the petition. I believe that
discussion is necessary. We are talking v6 allocations and as such I do not
believe for one minute that any of us have all the answers.

There is a privacy issue here too and whilst I support the proposal as
written, It does not mean that I cannot be swayed. This proposal has to be
and needs to be discussed at length so that we can all begin to see the
implications now and in an IPv6 world and beyond.
