That is exactly my point, if ARIN says that someone requesting IPv6 will not have higher fees, then how does that work with a legacy holder?  Do we want people to adopt IPv6 or not?  A policy that makes it the same cost to request and hold IPv4 and IPv6 works both ways.  If I am charged the same as someone who has both IPv4 and IPv6 resources, why would I not request IPv4 resources too?
