It doesn't enable it, it enforces it.

That's nice. I won't be at the meeting, so my consensus will have to be 
taken here, which is why I oppose and why I have placed my objections.

Because I disagree with ARIN enforcing protocol decisions and routing. I 
don't believe anyone should be forced into IPv6. I do not believe that 
deploying IPv6 has made an organizations network more deserving or in 
more need of IPv4 than a network which has not deployed IPv6. A network 
which has specific needs which haven't been met in IPv6 yet could 
technically be considered to need IPv4 more than a network who doesn't 
have those needs and easily deployed IPv6.
