IMNSHO, the sensible time is to do it when the relevant RIR runs out
of addresses. I'm sure the IETF can get a couple of thousand IPv4
addresses for temporary use even years after that time, but it would
seem a little hypocritical to do so.
The network at both of IETF meetings I've attended felt a little
archaic: abundant addresses, no paperwork, no firewall, no NAT.
So basically, you're complaining that you came to the IETF and
received production quality Internet service?
I'm not complaining just yet. Mumbling. But if «production quality
internet» would soon (e.g. IETF75 or -80) mean getting an IPv4 /19 when
noone else can get that, I would complain. The discrepancy between the
dogfood dispensed and the that eaten should not be _too_ wide.
