The most extreme example is if that person was the very last IPv4 ONLY 
network operator. They then complain that their network has been made 
useless because everyone else decided to finally turn off IPv4 for lack of 
use by everyone except that operator.  At that point the remaining 
operators of the world would consider the costs of keeping IPv4 in place 
just to contact that one remaining operator to be excessive.

Would it be reasonable for that operator then come to ARIN to suggest the 
establishment of an IPv4 requirement for all ARIN members, otherwise their 
network is no longer useful for communication?  That answer seems clear to 
me: NO

Maybe some day we might get close to this goal.
