I completely hear you.
I've argued repeatedly (back to 2007) that this BS about routing slots is
onsense, and that these kinds of policies are preventing adoption of IPv6 by
small and middle sized enterprises.

It's just not ARIN's job to protect routing slots.

I'm not clear if the resulting /40 will be announced at all.
If it will remain internal with IPVPN, and then, with a PI prefix from each
*local* ISP, then you have the classic Non-Connected Network.
