I don't know about that, there are always Legacy issues. I suspect in 10 or
20 years everyone who got IPv6 space now will be the cause of some kind
of Legacy issue. Thank god it will be different than the current IPv4 Legacy
issue. So in a very narrow way, you are correct the specific issues of IPv4
Legacy will not be an issue. But there will be a legacy issue, as sure as
technology marches on, it is just a fact of life in technology. No one has any
idea what it will be, if they did, we could plan to avoid it. But there will be a
legacy issue with IPv6.
