I agree with Chris, and I am in favor of the policy proposal as well.
I see no reason to maintain this peculiar distinction between the ipv4
and ipv6 address families.  The distinction should be eliminated.

Regarding those who are concerned that this policy could lead to
fragmentation of ipv6 routing tables: I am confident that the intent
of the proposal was to transfer allocations in their entirety.
If words to that effect are needed, I'm sure they can be developed.
