While the most recent drafts have not dealt with IPv4, in the last round 
there was a proposal to require registration upon request of the 
downstream customer of their IPv6 assignment.

If we intend to provide that power to require registration for IPv6 
customer assignments upon request, in fairness we should also use the same 
language in a new to allow static IPv4 customers that same 
power.  I suggest /32 as the limit, as /29 or more already has required 
registration.  The same problems identfied in not being able to register 
assignments with ARIN for v6 are also true for v4 assignments between 
those limits.

Since both protocols are still being addressed and attempts are being 
made by the draft to make v6 equal or better than v4, the title should 
remain.  The only thing we have done is not shift the v4 limit of /29.
