Not sure why you think these are either/or.  I suspect the answer  
will be vastly increased NATism _and_ IPv6 deployment.  ISPs will  
likely migrate their infrastructure to IPv6 without too much pain  
(reusing the IPv4 addresses for customer assignments and using IPv4  
tunneling).  The vast majority of end users will continue to use IPv4  
+ NAT.  The real challenge I see is figuring out how to convince  
content providers that they need to spend the money to add IPv6  
support along side their IPv4-based content.

Sorry, which industry is that?
