If you received an additional /21 between t=0 and t=1, sure.
The fee schedule currently indicates 'renewal' is only incurred for
resources actually issued or transferred during that year:
"This annual fee covers all resources issued or transferred to the Org
ID by ARIN. [...] The annual renewal fee is based on the rate at
which IPv4 addresses are allocated to the Org ID, and not on the
aggregate number of IPv4 addresses held by the Org ID."
So based on this:
t=1 Pay no renewal, since no resources transferred or issued
t=2 Pay $0 "renewal"
Pay $1250 for IPv6 /48, since it is the greater of the
So you see.. it is indicative of a disincentive to adopt V6.
The IPv4 user wanting an initial IPv6 allocation incurs a
substantially large expense...
