I would have thought the role ARIN (and the other RIRs) has to play is clear
from it's charter (registration of number resources to ensure uniqueness and
fair allocation of a finite resource).

And the need for someone or something to serve that role is best highlighted
when it fails (e.g. duplicate ASes in RIPE and ARIN last year).

Feel free to not deploy IPv6. Or get a /48 from a tunnel broker or your ISP.
You have plenty of options, just one of which is provider independent space
from ARIN.
