I would argue that the current system appears to be creating quite a few incentives to add IPv6 capabilities if you look at the current uptick in v6 statistics since Feb. 3.

I don't think it is on life support and I think a natural evolution is occurring. Some organizations which are unable to look beyond short term dollars will have faster and more disruptive migration processes while others with better vision have been planning and executing their migration strategies for years.

The longer you wait, the more rushed, expensive, and disruptive your inevitable transition will be.
