This similar to  Section 9.3.1. of the [APNIC-127] APNIC Internet Number Resource Policies. I feel that if organisations were able to receive a /48 for each /24 they hold, then it would help expedite the rollout of IPv6. Organisations currently have two choices - continue to use IPv4, or spend valuable time on applying for IPv6 space. IPv6 space is clearly in abundance - and this could potentially help slow the exhaustion of IPv4.
