I will comment only in one of the points, the other I believe are really 
well explained by others and it doesn't seem good to 'rain on the wet

Readdressing is something that is part of the business of running a 
network and a autonomous system. It is a cost that should be accounted 
whenever the network operator freely chooses to make a move the imposes 
renumbering. Of course the costs are not negligible but it is not a 
showstopper if well planned and executed. I have done several 
renumbering myself in different situations and none were so significant 
that justify allowing IPv6 transfers a the cost of the mess it has the 
potential do cause.

If there are practical and better options let's use them. From the few 
justifications in favor of that idea I didn't see one that is strong 
enough to consider allowing this type of change at this early point.

Best regards
