Actually, it is that simple. The Draft Policy proposal on the table
"Draft Policy ARIN-2013-3: Tiny IPv6 Allocations for ISPs" provides
an option for ISPs who wish to be issued IPv6 allocations which are
smaller than present policy allows. The Revised fee schedule will
allow this but does not require it in any fashion.
If adopted, it will indeed provide lower fees for those ISPs who make
use of it, but the question of whether the policy change is worthwhile
comes down to the community's consideration of whether it is fair and
technically sound. If the community doesn't think so, then no policy
change is needed (fees for smallest ISPs will still go down, but not
as far as they might otherwise)
