While I might agree, the tricky bit is having IPv6 end-to-end.  This  
is obviously neither plentiful nor cheap at this point in time and if  
ISPs aren't paying attention to longer term realities of IPv4  
exhaustion, this won't change.

Yep.  I imagine it is hard for content providers to make the business  
case to even look at IPv6 right now. And if content isn't available  
over IPv6, few ISP customers will ask for it, making it hard for ISPs  
to make their business case.  And around we go.
