Therin lies the rub, what people are talking about is not change out by
attrition over years with a gradual fade to v6, they are talking about an
enterprise network rollout changing to v6 across the board in a relatively
short time..  a different animal altogether..  this may be an elephant, but
it would be an elephant with a short shelf life..

Rotation by attrition would not meet the need.  Support of the v4 stack and
netblock would necessarily be maintained as long as there is one customer in
the netblock.
