In a short answer yes. Comcast has every intention of providing a
customer an IPv6 address. All the trials are looking at options as to
how to provide a scalable solution, to a scenario where all services do
not exist on either Internet, and IPv4 resources are not readily

I understand that you are looking at this as a means to reduce IPv4
address space usage by sharing one address amongst multiple customers,
and that's a novel approach. What I am more interested in is whether you
plan on offering IPv6 to your customers as well? This could be the
absolutely best-case scenario if you did, as an obvious solution to the
share-ed NAT problem (uPnP, no port forwarding...) your customers would
experience. It both creates a demand for IPv6 and offers a solution at
the same time.
