The current version calls for IPv6 address blocks for 
any end user that uses (or has serious plans to use) IPv6 on
at least 100,000 "unique devices" (routers, computers, etc.) and also multi-homes.
This is a compromise  between doing nothing, and the original
2002-3 like proposal. 

I would also urge interested parties to comment on PPML.
