	data point.  from the IETF this week, it was announced that COMCAST
	was  ready to start the largest v6 rollout (in the US) starting this
	year. As an advisor to them over the past year, I can state that they
	have been planning on this for quite a while and I think they are 
	covering (most) the bases.

	"me too!"  - :)  - frankly, I think the general idea is that ARIN
	members have a very low barrier to entry to get IPv6 resources and
	it behoves them to start -NOW- to get some v6 experience under the
	belt -before- it becomes critical path.

	i'm not sure we need to find incentives, i think they will emerge
	over time. what is important (IMHO) is to give ARIN members the 
	ability and resources to use IPv6 as their dictates demand.

	actually, there are a number of us who have interesting services
	already avialable on IPv6.  The traffic is small, perhaps negligable,
	but it is there and is growing.  But perhaps you are correct, I know
	of only a handful of people running IPv6 ONLY services.
