We'll all be better off if we all move to IPv6 and don't go the 
NAT44(44....) road longer than necessary. We can decide we want to wait 
for everybody else, which means we won't all be better off, ever.

Why is that a significant question?

If they have IPv6, they will access a significant amount of content via 
IPv6. If they don't, then it's nothing.

I don't get why people are arguing that we shouldn't do IPv6 because IPv6 
is so little of total traffic. There is so little traffic because ISPs do 
not turn on IPv6. The content is there now.
