I'd be interested in some data on the use of the ULA tool and registry, I'd
especially be interested in use over time.  Is use of the ULA registry
increasing or decreasing over the last few years?  Basically, is there an
argument for further or new work within the IPv6 community on this front?
Or, should this service just be sustained as-is, maybe finding a new home
or new support over the long-term?  Or, should this service also be sunset,
maybe not on the same timeframe as the other SixXS services?

Personally, if anything, I like to see some new work here, but I'd like to
drive what that is or should be with some data.

Finally, many thanks to SixXS for their years of service to the IPv6
community!  And, kudos for planning an orderly sunset, rather than decaying
into oblivion.
