Nothing to get to?
Google (including gmail, you tube, and many other google services)
All of the RIRs
Most US Government Public sites
And many other web sites are, in fact, reachable via IPv6.
Admittedly, it's only 35,329 of the Alexa 1M, but, many of them are very popular web sites (as listed above).
Even more if you include the ones named ipv6.<domain>
> My suggestion to ARIN was to promote getting more people to put more services on v6, which would help solve the actual real blocker.
How do you propose that ARIN do so other than by making it easier/cheaper to get IPv6 space for those services?
