By end user I mean hosting clients (cloud, collocation, shared, dedicated, VPS, etc.) of any sort. For example you 
have clients that would need....say /24 for their dedicated server. If you charge a $1.00/IP which is typical then 
you would lose that revenue if they converted to IPv6. If you didn't charge for IPv4 then you have nothing to to 
lose. 


A possible revenue-recovery model would be to charge say $2 per IP for services below a certain resource threshold, for 
example 1gb vps or larger get free IPs and dedicated servers get free IPs.  This helps to increase margin as some 
people will upgrade to more expensive plans to get the free IPv4s.  In hosting you can just issue /128s on ipv6 and 
require upgrades to get larger allocations.

Anyone charging end users for IPv6 space yet? :p

I can't imagine that this would be anything but counterproductive.  End users are not interested in IPv6 - most would 
not recognize IPv6 if it fell out of their screen.  End users want working connectivity, not jargon.
