I installed IPv6 on our OpenVMS systems in 2011 (or maybe earlier, 2011 
is when I got our IPv6 block through SixXs and the VMS systems were the 
first ones I configured for IPv6.)

Unfortunately, neither of our ISPs has IPv6 available in our area yet, 
though they both claim to be rolling it out.  (One of them has been 
making that claim for 8 years!)

I suppose that would qualify us for the "not available yet" exception, 
if we needed more IPv4, which we really don't.
