It seems to me that the author's organisation could qualify as an LIR
and obtain an IPv6 /32 under existing policies.  I don't understand the
relevance of RFC1918 above -- presumably the organisation would wan tto
be properly conencted to the global Internet, not to use private address
space.  I also don't understand the relevance of the reference to IPv6
PI policy in the proposal -- the organisations targeted by this proposal
are themselves providers who would qualify as LIRs; they are not end
users who would need to either get space from an upstream provider or
get PI space from an RIR.
