I don't think the issue is *money* (at least the big issue; money is
*always* an issue), but rather the all-of-sudden jump from being
unregulated to regulated, whatever that means. I would think multiple
times before making that jump. Hence my suggestion to set up a separate
organization to request IPv6 space, and thus not 'endanger' whatever I
had before.
