"Organizations approved for receiving the standard /35 initial IPv6
allocation will be charged an annual fee of $2,500 (US). For larger
amounts of addresses, a fee of $20,000 (US) will be assessed. These fees
are payable prior to receiving the addresses and thereafter on the
anniversary date of the initial allocation. However, IPv6 fees will not be
charged to organizations that are current ARIN IPv4 subscription holders."

you don't pay more" holds true, I don't have a problem.

with maintaining the whois database and two ip6.arpa records for each and
every /32 v6 allocation.

$10K USD for each /16 of v4 space seems a bit steep as well but such is
