I believe this to be an extraordinary statement that everyone needs
to read twice.  This is the basic truth in this argument.  Until those
segments of the population fighting to keep the IPv6 Internet PA only
realize that the vast majority of end sites have no interest in anything
*but* PI space, we will simply continue to see this argument rehashed.
I'm definitely waiting for PI space, and I suspect many other end sites
will continue to wait until we can get reasonable policy in place.
