Incentive       :       The current policy does not allow IPv6 provider  
independent (PI) address assignment to any 'end-sites'. In addition,  
lack of IPv6 transport will compel many 'end-sites' to tunnel. Thus,  
to avoid renumbering when IPv6 transport will be available, a  
provider independent assignment seems reasonable. More so, not all  
LIR's have IPv6 address space allocations. This makes it impossible  
for end-users to get PA IPv6 address space from such upstreams  
(LIR's). This policy is also aimed at providing IPv6 address space to  
such end-users as long as they already have or qualify to get PI IPv4

Some do,  but it  also creates deaggregation.
