While I agree with you, however I view this proposals outcome as an 
improvement over an outcome that sees the free pool drained in the same 
manner and same speed as had been done prior to the three month policy 
taking effect.

In both scenarios the free pool is likely gone in a matter of (6-18) 
months, not (2-4) years, as is currently (re)projected for ARIN.

I had expected to garner support from those who have voiced opinions in 
that very fashion, that ipv4 must make way for ipv6, the sooner the 
better, even if they are not my own.

I dont know why they have been so strangely silent at this turn. Is the 
proposal just too blatant?
