Which of these statements do I have wrong or is unclear:

1. Under the new fee policy, an IPv4-only /22 holder will pay $500/year

2. Under the new fee policy, and under the current allocation policy, an 
IPv4 /22 holder will pay $1000/year starting at the time that they receive 
IPv6 space because the minimum IPv6 allocation size puts them into 

3. $1000/year is double $500/year

4. Some service providers will either not request IPv6 space or will 
return IPv6 space to set their costs at $500/year.

5. As a community, it is bad to have incentives in place that encourage 
service providers to avoid requesting or return IPv6 address space
