my list was just examples.  yes, some will get v6, quite a few things 
won't.  when i get to the point that i only have v6 addresses to hand out 
to customers, i need to have hardware to sell/give them that will allow 
their existing network to continue to run.  your typical residential 
customer isn't going to accept that some of their existing equipment won't 
work with my network when "giant isp" that has managed to hoard enough v4 
addresses can give them a connection where everything works fine.  so far 
i am not seeing any sign of such a piece of hardware...
