ARIN Region IPv6 fee waiver:

"In Jan 2008, the Board of Trustees decided to reduce the fee waiver
incrementally over a period of 4 years. Full fees will be in effect in

Can you provide rationalization why anyone should automatically get any
kind of allocation?  Or why legacy holders should "have equivalent
[IPv6] space under the same terms"  

You can read through past iterations of this discussion over in the PPML

Subject: ARIN IP6 policy for those with legacy IP4 Space

Was looking at the ARIN IP6 policy and cannot find any reference to
those who have
IP4 legacy space.

Isn't there an automatic allocation for those of us who have legacy IP
space. If not, is ARIN saying we have to pay them a fee to use IP6?
Isn't this a disincentive for us to move up to IP6?

Those with legacy IP4 space should have the equivalent IP6 space under
the same terms. Or am I missing something?
