pTLA request for Internet2

6BONE Folk,

The following pTLA request is to serve the Internet2 (I2) community with
IPv6 production quality service. The I2 project  will approach 200 US major
universities by the end of this year. I have been working with Dale
Finkelson (who is the person responsible for IPv6 activites in the I2
community) since last August planning their IPv6 deployment activity.

Given the scale and scope of the I2 community, I believe this is a very
important step in for IPv6 deployment activities, and strongly support
their becoming a pTLA.

I would like to have comments on this request sent to the list by close of
business 26 March (two weeks from today).
