Regarding point 2 in the "Action" list, I think we should not suggest that the 
ITU to conduct such a study, since that will prolong the situation needlessly.  

I suggest that we retain the gist of the point but move it under the existing 
paragraph in the section headed  "Equitable distribution". 

Here's some suggested text:

"This community believes there are no exhaustion issues associated with IPv6 
and calls on recognised Industry experts to conduct a formal study into 
projections for IPv6 exhaustion to clarify this."

This text add or change the statement, but simply moves to where it fits best - 
with the Internet experts qualified to conduct the research.
