Scope the equation. If legacy's sign an LRSA but still don't pay current 
v4 tier fees, then don't include any of their v4 in the equation. Or 
apply a weight to their holdings. As long as it is applied on both 
sides, it will still average out right.

Instead of completely dropping v6 from the equation, you could exclude 
v4 and only count v6, if # of /48 > # of /24 * modifier, otherwise only 
count v4. The modifier to to protect small ISP's who get /32 of IPv6.

It requires that you maintain for all registrants if you're putting 
their v4 or their v6 into the equation.
