Well, there is the position that that would encourage
(especially) the small orgs to move to IPv6 to avoid
the $MEGACORP$ tax to return to fairness.  That
could be considered good for all.

So, to assure long term fairness, should ARIN start
charging $1,000 per IPv4 address to encourage
IPv6 adoption (and fund the RPKI defense fund :-)
