[rpd] Thinking of soft landing... and IPv6 Deployment

Thinking of soft landing, and having just completed Mukom's IPv6
deployment challenge survey, my idle thought of the day;

Firstly - no soft landing proposal should include promises of the member
getting or deploying IPv6. What is should do though is:

Unless you are a brand new members who has no resources of any kind, all
requests for additional IPv4 space must be made from the members IPv6
address space. i.e. - the e-mail request must come from one of the
members e-mail servers to AFRINIC over IPv6 transport from an IPv6
address belonging to that member. If the request is web based - then it
must come from a device using that members IPv6 address space.

(You have to have deployed IPv6 far enough in order to ask for
additional IPv4 address space.)

This should be technically very easy to check for.
