Sure.  But my point is the notion that observed IPv6 traffic volumes are due to deliberate migration is not correct.

'When', or 'if'?  The creeping proliferation of CGNs and the like, along with your example of TVs and oblique point about the sparsity of IPv6-enabled content/services/applications, does not necessarily support the conclusion that wholesale migration within the near- or medium-terms is inevitable.
