I remember when IPv4 was thought to be plenty as well.   I understand the view of conservation with IPv6 being hard to swallow this early, but I'd rather learn from history opposed to repeating it.

Yes. It seems that IPv6 addresses are scarce resources which must be
carefully managed.

Or perhaps it is another example of IPv4 thinking being applied where it
is not needed.
