Well, in addition to being an Enterprise...my company is also an ASP.... which I believe would qualify as a "content and services provider" under your definition.

So lets see, if I want to deploy IPv6 currently....

 - Huge transition costs

 - No support for tools I rely on every day to make MY environment work the way I want it.

 - Out of compliance with current regulatory standards.

Gee Whiz... where do I get to sign up for that?
