This is where this strategy will completely break down.

Your understanding of "in some capacity" will be very different from
someone else's.

If we try to nail down specifics, the slope gets very slippery.

I see the intent, but I'm really not sure what problem we are actually
trying to solve. Is it to preserve IPv4? Is it to encourage IPv6
adoption? Is it to create "fairness"? Is it get "unused" IPv4 space back
into the pool?

It's starting to get a little complex, I think.
