The current "slow start" philosophy of keeping IPv6 addresses away from entrepreneurs, small businesses, individuals, etc, seems to have been highly effective.
- It has kept IPv6 from being deployed in any sizable way until we now face the wall with the end of IPv4 allocations probably next year.
- We now face a forced rollout of IPv6 without enough experience in it, especially in large scale IPv6 network operations and security.
- We avoided fixing or replacing a conceptually broken protocol like BGP for twenty years.
- And every day more IPv4 based apps have come online which inevitably increases the conversion costs for the end user.
Excellent long range planning!
