There are two basic value propositions:  IPv6 is better, or IPv6 is cheaper.
You argue that it
must be better.
I presented my argument in Dallas, that IPv6 will be cheaper than IPv4 when
ISPs' costs to 
expand an IPv4 network rise.  Some ISPs will, no doubt, raise prices for
IPv4 service.  Then
IPv6 will be in demand.  We can even express this now to app developers and
electronics makers:  "Don't let your app/device be the one that costs your
customer extra 
dollars every month.  Especially if your competitor's app/device does
support IPv6."

There are significant deployments of residential IPv6 now.

I'm not expecting content over IPv6 just yet (unless it's a pre-release
