To those who oppose because they find the mechanism in the proposal is 
not effective do you have an alternative and more effective text to 
propose so the author may consider a change. I guess if you the current 
is ineffective the alternative would have to be more complex but still 
objective.

The point I believe is not about creating hurdles for IPv4 but a natural 
and quiet obvious move to what IS the current Internet protocol and what 
must work in order for Internet to survive. Otherwise why would ARIN's 
Board issue such resolution in that sense ? And there are plenty of 
other Internet related organizations in the same direction.

There will be conflicts in either cases, if things a left loose are they 
are at the people's pleasure there will be as mentioned, growing 
conflicts regarding IPv4 exhaustion and they tend to grow quiet fastly. 
If things push for transition to IPv6 (in this case much more softly) 
there will be conflicts with those who believe they have the right to 
hold themselves and all others to the past.

Even more important is that due to these ones willing to wash their 
hands and deny evolution making *all others will be paying the price* 
due not only the problems caused by the lack of IPv4 but also to the 
price increasing they will have to pay should they to need to purchase 
any extra chunk of addresses to be able to exist in the internet while 
there is a feasible solution available.
That's why it is very reasonable and fair that this same impacted 
community desire to have more mechanisms to that direction and is 
completely legit they come out from a change in the policy

Between both types of conflicts my bet is that the second which means 
evolution will prevail.

Best regards
Fernando
