I think B is the business case for A.  Risk mitigation. You know 
something will change 2-3 years from now.  Are you willing to bet 
the business that Nat Hell will win?  

Right now, if I screw up my IPv6 connectivity, I get complaints, but
I fix it and do a writeup about what happened, and people seem to 
understand.  If I screw up my IPv4 connectivity, people get mad and 
leave.  I want to make all my newbie IPv6 mistakes now, not three years 
from now.
