Jack, I think you made my point here much more succinctly, and a bit less
controversially than I did.

Despite the schoolyard responses, there is a simple point here.  It is NOT
the business of ARIN to be dictating who spends what where, and prop 125
does that.  It's simply out of scope.  We don't need to encourage IPv6, it
is as inevitable as the morning sun tomorrow!

I feel like we are debating a policy designed to get the sun to rise faster
and everyone will need to buy stock in "SunComeUpCo" now or else.
