This will change the question "who is worthy to receive an IPv6 block" into "who is worthy to receive an AS number" - which is today defined on a pure technical basis, with the "hurdle" being the address acquisition, not the AS number. If you tie it to the *routing* policy thing ("verifiable dual upstreams" or such), it will indeed solve some parts of "the PI problem", without opening the flood gates to "everyone". OTOHO, it might make "everyone" want to get an AS number - and BGP "multihoming" isn't so hard to achieve, if it only serves the purpose of qualifying for an AS number... Now if the future would not be so cloudy today...
