Though the address registries will hopefully start to assign production
IPv6 addresses by the end of 1Q 99 (end March 99?), there is still a need
for sites and networks to experiment with IPv6. In fact, at this very early
stage of IPv6 production deployment, I think it important that ISPs get
experience with IPv6 in a pTLA or transit NLA 6bone environment prior to
making a TLA/Sub-TLA request to the registries.

Thanks for catching my error, I did mean 11 Jan 99 to close the IPF.NET
pTLA request period.
