Oh, I am going to be called a troll for this..

But seriously? First of all there are those who have no business need to 
move to IPv6, where IPv4 is all they ever will need, so you can 
understand that it will be low on their priority list....

And (wait for it) .. what emperical evidence do we have that IPv6 is the 
clear future of the internet.. after .. (how many years has this been 
pushed?) .. all this time, it STILL is not universally adopted, which in 
itself says it is NOT the 'clear future'..

Me, (okay, this is after a beer or two tonight) I was just having a 
discussion with some people the other night, and we were discussing the 
idea that a new protocol might even roll out at this rate before IPv6 is 
universally adopted...

I think that while ARIN can be a proponent of moving to IPv6, it still 
has a responsibility to listen to those who have no need for this.  The 
idea of penalizing IPv4 allocations, because they don't believe in IPv6, 
seems .. well... I don't think it serves the community properly.

(BTW, I am NOT an IPv6 hater, but the we do need to allow for differing 
opinions in order for ARIN to truly represent all stake holders, lest we 
fragment the community)
