I must somewhat agree. Our fiber provide to our ISP just recently rolled out ipv6 but not dual stack.
We have a great deal of problems routing to ipv6 hosts from our customers ipv6 ip addresses.
We have trouble with our Verizon phones on ipv6 getting to our routers.
People out in the country putting in video surveillance systems that the will only use a static ipv4 IP.
We are out of ipv4 IP's.
So at this point it costs us customers and increased service calls when ROKU says the ISP (Us) is at fault.
They expect us to cover the min. $100 service call fee on a $50 plan
Tell me how can that work.

I have been quiet on this list for 2 or 3 years. This entire message chain makes no good solution.

The invisible hand has its middle finger extended, telling you and those 
like you what many have been saying for years unto deaf ears. IPv6 and 
its migration have been and continue to be an utter disaster, created 
purely out of ivory tower hubris that designed it to be an incompatible 
dual stack dual cost useless investment for most of the actual users of 
the network.

And it was easily predictable.
