I would love to have PI IPv6 space and as I have no IPv4 space from ARIN, adding IPv6 will raise my fees. What is the proposal to get legacy holders to adopt IPv6?

As noted before by others, I don't understand why a record has different costs based on what the record is for.  The difference in fees seems to go against ARINs goal of allocating resources to the community.

Is the overhead of an IPv6 allocation record 5x an ASN record?
