Then I guess we need to make the IPv6 connectivity an ongoing obligation
to keep the additional IPv4 blocks, rather than a one shot test during
transfer to eliminate the game playing.
Proof using a mixed web page after they have the block, showing a single
user with a cookie has fetched BOTH an element on the page using the
transfered IPv4 address block, as well as an element using the assigned
IPv6 block would put a stop to this kind of game. Although, I hope that
this kind of enforcement would not be needed, but knowing some people,
maybe it is. These elements could be put into Arin Online in the form of
a required annual test.

Applicants who have to jump through a hoop will ask “how high”, do the bare minimum (or outsource the task to someone who already has v6 and makes a business of announcing others’ netblocks just long enough to comply), and then stop there. This draft policy would very rarely help convince anyone to meaningfully deploy IPv6, and would not be worth making life difficult for everyone else.

Both of those are hard and expensive on an enterprise network, so most enterprises have opted to “buy” so far.
