Unfortunately this is an issue that's going to have to be forced.  Either by
a major government or the major RIRs.  

It's like HDTV.  Stations are all flocking to convert channels to HDTV not
because it's somehow better but because the FCC mandated it several years
ago.  The same will have to happen with IPv6.  The industry is to widespread
and fragmented to make a concerted effort on its own.

If the RIRs gave everyone 10 years to convert or lose your ability to route
packets you would see a transition much like the TV industry, IPv6 starting
to pop up with IPv4 and eventually taking over as IPv4 became irrelevant and
everyone converted to meet new requirements.
