I don't think anyone was proposing it as an alternative to v6.  It is
more along the lines of keeping the existing v4 net working as people
migrate over.  Freeing up WAN IPs can make them available for v6
migration purposes.  The ironic thing about v6 is that it will require
some additional v4 addresses during the migration period.
