IPv6 End User Fee

By end user I mean hosting clients (cloud, collocation, shared, dedicated, VPS, etc.) of any sort. For example you have clients that would need....say /24 for their dedicated server. If you charge a $1.00/IP which is typical then you would lose that revenue if they converted to IPv6. If you didn't charge for IPv4 then you have nothing to to lose.

I can't imagine that this would be anything but counterproductive.  End users are not interested in IPv6 - most would not recognize IPv6 if it fell out of their screen.  End users want working connectivity, not jargon.
