[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2019-19: Require IPv6 Before Receiving Section 8 IPv4 Transfers

The Google IPv6 stats page clearly states that their graph indicates the % of users who access Google services using IPv6. That means eyeball networks, enterprise, non-profit, government, etc. In other words, you might summarize this by saying "the Internet".

At 30% of the Internet right now, I'd say IPv6 adoption is looking healthy. The next wave might require a little nudge, and a policy like this one might be just the thing to help open the eyes of those who - for whatever reason - wish to ignore IPv6. The health of the Internet from its inception has originated from the cooperation of community members. The economic principle of network effects is at work in the adoption of IPv6, so the more on board with IPv6, the merrier. 

BTW, I support in principle, though as David Farmer suggested in his recent reply, I would also be partial to seeing a policy adaptation like this applied to accessing the waiting list as a priority (though not necessarily to the exclusion of applying the same to transfers).

> 30% of *global* Internet traffic, measured by google, among others.

I get it, the right way to measure the IPv6 part of Internet traffic is at Google, which is IPv6 enabled.
Totally scientific.

Geez, I wonder if someone was to measure the Windows market share on desktops inside Microsoft, what would they find.
