  I could only wish the biggest software barrier to disabling IPv4 on 
local networks was XP's DNS resolver path.

  Doing away with IPv4 isn't a sane short-term goal for anyone carrying 
along software as old as XP anyway; I'd focus on getting IPv6 to all of 
the things and marginalizing IPv4 destinations to the point that CGN is 
of reduced impact and concern.

  Oh, and a pony.
