No. If you have IPv4 space already, it is incredibly easy to get IPv6. Getting the default /48 as an end-user is about as automatic as it could be, and qualifying for more is not much more effort if you have multiple sites.

The only issue is that for end-users, you now have to pay an additional $100 per year for the IPv6 assignment.
