Also, you can under this proposal still have that Windows 3.1 workstation, 
or even a DOS workstation using packet drivers.

All it says is that 1) You have an IPv6 Assignment or Allocation from 
ARIN, and 2) You have at least ONE workstation on it that is capable of 
communicating using that IPv6 address space with ARIN.

It is NOT a requirement to place IPv6 everywhere in your network, although 
in todays world that is getting to be more and more desirable.

And just FYI, there is a third party winsock that will allow you to use 
that workstation on an IPv6 network, along with packet drivers for dos, 
that also use IPv6.  Windows has had IPv6 support since W2K, almost 20 
years ago.  This requirement is NOT a hardship, just a friendly jolt in 
the correct direction for the future.
