Hi John,

It would be appropriate for ISPs and End-users to have identical
standing before ARIN, in number policy, in membership and in fees.
That is not the case and is not on the table.

Under the pending fee schedule, annual end-user fees increase.
Typically by double with the expectation that IPv6 deployment will
result in the fees tripling. At least some ISP fees go down. Is it not
appropriate, then, that end users' standing before ARIN improve while
ISPs' standing deteriorates in comparable measure?
