You would have to set a base fee, subtract the base fee from ARIN's budget total, then apply the equation to average out the resource utilization.

If the equation balances properly between v4 and v6 size differentials, then the value should still be close to the end result.

ARIN's full budget is approx $15M annually; feel free to propose 
a fee structure that you believe is appropriate.
