no. if i wanted to roll out way more devices in the next few years than
are in ARIN's free pool, and i had several competitors who i knew were
doing the same, then i'd try pretty hard to run V6 native, and if my
hardware partners said they wouldn't be able to do that as soon or as
cheaply, i'd look at CGN.
