The problem with this methodology is that it would place the burden on
the backs of an already overburdened population. Costs in business are
absorbed readily, so long as they are applied evenly across the board.
In fact when on a level playing field more outgo translates to more
income based on fixed rate markup of expenses passed to the consumer.
Big business doesn't mind when their costs go up, as long as the cost
for the competition increases proportionally. The real cost is passed
to the consumer, who will have little to say about network organization
until it is way too late.
I would be very afraid that this could place the cost of Internet out of
the reach of the common man.
I have to lean towards Leo's take, Kevin.
The real-world cost would quickly settle on the "zero" for IPv6. Yes, there would be a 'bump' for a time but that's all.
Frankly (and only half tongue-in-cheek) if we really want the Joe Average world to go IPv6 the strategy is simple: put up a massive free live triple-X video and download suite of sites... accessible only via IPv6.
