Statements like that tell me that we are still thinking in IPv4  
terms.  This is precisely why this discussion is happening, because  
we _need_ to think in non-IPv4 terms.  If we are constrained by how  
things work in the IPv4 world then you are correct.  However, if we  
are constrained by how things work in the IPv4 world then IPv6 will  
not be worth much anyway.
