It's probably a good time to stop the Titanic reference. Sure IPv6 deployment has reached 12% globally, but my most optimistic projections show that IPv4 is going to be relevant for a half decade more from now. I think the Titanic sunk in less time if I'm not mistaken.
Transfer policies are going to be the most stable source of IPv4 addresses post-depletion so it does make good sense to have good policies for those organizations who need it.

[Top-posting because the specifics don't matter]
Deck chairs. Titanic. If y'all would go deploy the worldwide native IPv6 Internet, none of what happens to IPv4 - including it all being bought up by "evil speculators" - matters one bit. The amount of time spent discussing IPv4 policy in the past few months, never mind the amount of hand-wringing about possible outcomes if the policy is "exploited" by someone is probably sufficient to have just built the replacement that I'm told doesn't suffer from any of these issues. Among other things, the "little guys" that needs assessment is supposedly protecting (despite ample evidence that /8s are getting locked up outside of policy by large organizations with perceived need) can go get all the IPv6 space they need, right now, without any trouble.
Is there a way to submit a proposal to the policy development process itself to block any and all future policy changes that impact IPv4 so we can just vote on that and then stop this nonsense?
