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.
