Unfortunately, I gather this isn't what end users or network operators
want or expect. I suspect if we want to make real inroads towards
IPv6 deployment, we'll need to spend a bit more time making IPv6 look,
taste, and feel like IPv4 and less time berating folks for "IPv4-
think" (not that you do this, but others here do). For example,
getting over the stateless autoconfig religion (which was never fully
thought out -- how does a autoconfig'd device get a DNS name
associated with their address in a DNSSEC-signed world again?) and
letting network operators use DHCP with IPv6 the way they do with IPv4.
Or, we simply continue down the path of more NATv4.
