That message needs to be communicated loud and clear to the people who
depend on IPv4 addresses. Some form of rationing could still be passed
as policy, and this would mean that we have a lot less than the 3 year
buffer we thought that we had. If rationing starts in 12 months from
now, then companies who are not already rolling out IPv6 will have their
business damaged.

This is a real crisis situation which will cause another reshuffle of
the companies in the IP networking industry. Chaos for some, opportunity
for others.
