I agree with Joel here, I think once 6rd goes in... if the support is
in linecards/interfaces and CPE and 'low cost' to the devices in
question (happens in hardware on the ingress interface of the SP
router, for instance) then... There's not much incentive to migrate
away from it. I can see it staying deployed for a very long time.
(unless of course there are no ipv4 numbers to be used in the ISP...)
