Just because their users can reach popular content-rich/high-bandwidth endpoint sites via IPv6 *that they can also reach via IPv4* doesn't seem to provide much of an incentive in and of itself for IPv6 deployment.  

Obviously, they deployed IPv6 for other reasons, and it would be far more useful to know *why* they deployed it in the first place (i.e., as an experiment, because their user base is outstripping their IPv4 allocations, etc.).
