It will probably happen before that.  The Japanese government
requirement that all businesses be fully ipv6 compliant before 2005 is
certainly going to have a major impact on vendor ipv6 implementations,
from the core to the desktop  So while you may not get 30Mpps on your
backbone router, you're probably not going to be stuck with a white
elephant rate-limited to 200Kpps either.  One day, you may even be able
to run an ipv6-only desktop from vendor M, who knows?

        I saw a DISA memo yesterday that mandates IPv6 compliance 
        by 2008.
