Read that again and think about how we really want people to adopt IPv6.  Do
you want someone to start using it NOW because it's free, or when its too
late because it cost $1250/yr extra and wasn't viable because they are
almost going out of business as it is?

How much of the IPv4 space is taken by x-small at the moment?  Do you really
want to delay that group from adopting ipv6?  Sheesh!
