No, but, I have access to a pretty good perspective on IPv6 traffic and
domain statistics. The IPv6 internet is already passing more traffic than
the IPv4 internet of only 8 years ago. When you consider the number of
years it took IPv4 to get to that point, I'd say IPv6 is catching up fast.

Now is not the time to be generous in such estimates.
