There are still too many unasnswered questions, and you raised a lot of 
them.  We still haven't figured out how to solve the IPv4 multihoming 
problems in IPv6.  But the biggest issue is money.  Especially in the days 
of the internet/telco bust no backbones are going to throw a ton of money 
at an issue that they won't see a benefit from in the short term.  There is 
no consumer demand (or even corporate demand).

But we are getting _WAY_ off topic here, again.
