Yes (simple answer)

APNIC and RIPE are in their (IPv4) exhaustion phase.

I would not say that everything is working fine.  There has been 
outreach, etc.  The current IPv6 statistics are not 
encouraging.  What was proposed in this thread was for ICANN to do 
more outreach.  I don't think that would have significant impact; 
that approach has been tried previously by one or more 
organizations.  What I am not agreeing to is to volunteer for the 
initiative.  That does not prevent other people from volunteering for 
the initiative.
