I have to oppose this for the simple logic:
1) we want to kill 6bone as soon as possible
2) for these prefixes to be useful, they have to implemented
3) withdrawing implementations takes a long time.
So, giving out 6bone pTLAs would probably just lead to continuation of
the 6bone mess.
There is already a better process in place for something like this --
for example the experimental allocations:

Netcore Oy kingdom bleeds."
Systems. Networks. Security. -- George R.R. Martin: A Clash of Kings
