Frankly, I agree with earlier detractors..

While it may be important to ARIN to push for IPv6 adoption, I don't 
believe using IPv4 allocation policies as a method to 'force' adoption 
is a wise or efficient method for encouraging adoption..

I believe you should simply keep both purposes separate.. totally.

There are other ways to encourage IPv6 adoption, and it should be left 
up to the industry, and not ARIN policy, and it should NOT hamstring 
those who for one reason or another feel no need to consider IPv6 at 
this time.

There might be legitimate reasons, that while we may not understand or 
fathom them, and are important to the person looking for IPv4 waiting 
lists and/or transfers, but who are we to say..
