Not even needed to go exponential, just make it linear. Say something like 10 cent per IP per year on average (or whatever "class" model that ends up around there) : any LIR with less than a /20 will pay less than now, who has allocated something around a /8-/16 will have to rethink about moving to IPv6 (or release the addresses, if they are not using them).
