So go and tell ARIN that you don't like that.

In RIPE land, this is not the case. You pay annual fees for all services 
altogether (which go up a bit if you have very much IPv4 space, which
*does* create extra work) and - right now - no extra costs for IPv6.

This is true in RIPE land.

This is very much indeed, and I would not like that either.
