There are ZERO others that I wish to connect to that require me to install IPv6. I have ZERO need for IPv6 and I won't have any for the foreseeable future. The only thing that IPv6 could do for me is to waste my resources configuring it.
The reason companies like Google have interest in IPv6 deployment is 
simply to get more people connected to the internet which will certainly 
not happen in scenarios like yours. Also not sure if you know but Google 
isn't only a search engine anymore for quiet a while.

Are you going to challenge ARIN in the court because you don't like the 
policy and the well established policy making process that you signed a 
contract agreeing with ?
I don't understand why you keep the saying ARIN is "forcing" you to 
something. This proposal will not force anyone to deploy IPv6, just add 
an extra condition for those willing to receive more IPv4, therefore it 
is optional.
