Re: [sig-policy] Final call for comments:[prop-028-v001]"AbolishingIPv6 per address fee for NIRs"
If you point out that proposal itself, my answer will be because "100% discount of PAF for all allocations" will be simpler than "90% discount of PAF only for IPv4 infrastructure based evaluation".
If you point out the long-term NIR fee change, it is not a small amount and PAF no longer fits - for example a *single* /21 IPv6 allocation introduced us PAF of USD64K where JPNIC's total annual payment for APNIC was approx USD200K. This is a huge difference either in case PAF would be born by the LIR or by the NIR. PAF used to be modest enough to be fit. but it isn't any longer.
Am I answering?
