[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2013-3: Tiny IPv6 Allocations for ISPs

To echo what Jimmy Hess said;

"Therefore, it is a very bad idea for ARIN to  be attempting to create
artificial IP address scarcity  by  billing more for "enough" IPv6.

It actually creates pressure to  forego IPv6 technical standards,  and
 attempt to deploy the protocol in a manner that may be less
successful in the long run.
"
Maybe not so much from the billing perspective, but from the deployment
perspective. Allocations of IPv6 addresses should be consistent with
and a proponent
of a deployment methodology that allows for easy expansion of networks
without additional allocations and associated costs. Allocating blocks that
encourage /56 allocations from their block may not be the optimal solution
for many in the long run.
