The basic arguments in support of free markets, generally, have been
made. You're accustomed to a system which has always worked well, so
you don't see a reason to change it. I don't really see a benefit to
trying to change your mind as I don't believe that you will view this
as a good idea unless you actually were to see it at work.

You are perhaps one of the most substantial and well known IPv6
proponents in the world, as is your employer. Naturally, you're going
to see IPv6 as the solution rather than free markets. Your employer is
going to be one of the very few companies that will not suffer from
IPv4 exhaustion so I don't expect you to want to support a measure
that would prolong the life of IPv4.

We both support IPv6. The major difference is that you started a
decade ago and I started one year ago. Accordingly, I am more
sympathetic to companies who have not made the appropriate plans.
