That's an assertion I've heard, but has anyone quantified it?   How much time and money would it take?  Has anyone just asked the 22 /8 holders mentioned above nicely if they might just like to give them back for some good publicity?  You know, US DoD migrates to IPv6 and returns X /8s for the good of the American people (assume ARIN) so that broadband might continue to grow and thrive in the land of the free?
