[arin-ppml] Is it time to start requirement to have IPv6 in place before receiving Section 8.5 transfered IPv4 addresses?

I may be wrong but it looks like that for some people at some point the 
only thing that matters is the sensation someone may be trying to tell 
them how to do things than if IPv6 should be deployed or not.
Right, how long more will we be in this back and forth of "I know I have 
to deploy IPv6 but I will do on my own time" ? How long more we will 
hear things like "there is no other way out of transfer market" and "it 
is natural thing to buy more IPv4 to be in business" and then right 
after "Don't tell me I have to deploy IPv6".

There have been times in the past when deploying IPv6 had challenges, 
concerns or limitations, but now a days let's be honest, there are 
probably none. We are in 2019, nearly 2020 and it seems there are still 
a significant amount of people that wishes to keep supporting the 
transfer market rather than do the obvious that we all know will make 
the Internet ecosystem to keep evolving, perhaps with less conflicts.
And what Albert is proposing to discuss is fair and very much 
reasonable, nothing out of order: simply the organization to show it is 
doing its job (or is there anyone the believes IPv6 is still just 
accessory and can wait another 20 years ?) in order that is can use the 
transfer mechanism of IPv4. He didn't suggest anything different than that.

Shall we focus on discussing the pro and cons of this possible proposal, 
if it is suitable or not, if it will make the Internet advance or not, 
rather than arm against the nature of things ?
Thanks for bringing this 2007 Board's statement to this discussion.
