ARIN ..still needs to delegate/admin the space.. costs will be incured.
To be completely clear, the conservation argument has gone away as
a constraint of equal importance with route aggregation, and in IPv6
we can give route aggregation much more importance than conservation
in the allocation policies. But an allocation service still costs
money and somebody has to pay for it.
Some of the early deployment scenarios for IPv6 are intended to bypass
this issue; for example see draft-ietf-ngtrans-6to4-06.txt .
