      Thank you very much for voicing your opinion to this proposal.

      I feel you have prejudice against NIRs.The fact that many NIRs send 
      colleagues to APNIC meeting indicates NIRs are the most active group 
      in APNIC communities. NIR did a lot of things to promote Internet 
      development in AP region. We assist APNIC to make survey of internet 
      resourcein our nation or region, to hold training meeting and get 
      feedback from local ISPs to APNIC in order to improve APNIC's service. 
      We provide local service to local ISPs. In fact,ISPs would like get 
      service from NIRs and they are satisfied with NIR's service as well. 
      NIRs need respect and suggestion but not prejudice.
      Each NIR is the representative of the local ISPs in its country. They 
      say what the ISPs want it to say and do what the the ISPs want it to do.
      When APNIC members do not have to fear large amounts of pre address fee, 
      NIR's member must make difficult decision whether they must pay large 
      amounts of pre address fee to get enough addresses or use private addresses 
      to avoid pre address fee. OK, you can say "it is none of your business", but 
      we could not keep silent. Abolishing IPv6 pre address fee almost make no 
      impact on APNIC financial status(1% of APNIC's revenue,and I believe APNIC 
      will continue to develop with the grouth of member's number), but it can 
      provide local ISPs better environment to get enough addresses, the policy 
      will promote IPv6 deployment,that is a good thing for AP region.
