Please explain to me how you distinguish between current "needs-basis"
IPv6 policy and "demonstration of meaningful plan to utilize".

The term needs basis as applied to current IPv6 policy is basically that.

While you can make the argument that it isn't technically "need", but rather
"reasonable anticipation of need", it is what is in place today and what we
tend to mean when we refer to "needs basis".

I will point out that this particular claim has been made by both sides of this debate against the other.
