Okay, I'll agree, but "if there were motivation" is a very large "if"...

The only motivation would be money, as represented by customers leaving 
to competitors as a result of a service provider not offering your proposed 
service bundle.  

If you can figure out a way to persuade service providers of this belief,
I would ask that you also persuade them that they have to offer dual-stack 
for all of their customers (which may have already resulted in them losing 
a small number of customers who expected IPv6 by now... :-)
