I'd change that a little and add another subsection;
126.96.36.199(g): An LIR that requested a /36 or /40 initial allocation is
entitled to increase said allocation's size to /36 or /32. This change
is not a subsequent allocation as described in 6.5.3. Additionally, a
minimum of a /32 will be reserved for all such LIRs to facilitate this
188.8.131.52(h): An LIR that received a /32 initial allocation before the
availability of the /36 and /40 initial allocation sizes is entitled to
a one-time decrease of their allocation size to /36 or /40. Such an LIR
will retain the first (lowest numbered) subnet or the last (highest
numbered) subnet of their original block.
Anyone have other text suggestions?

Yes, I believe that xx-small would be changed for both ISP and end users
to "/40 or smaller", this means the vast majority of end users will
receive their IPv6 assignment for $500, and only the largest end users
would pay more than $500.

This is defiantly an issue and I support changes to fix it, but it is
not related to the IPv6 assignment or allocation policies and is not a
subject for the PDP.
