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

Ah, government memos.  There's been ones mandating OSI protocols,
UNIX workstations for all government employees...

Government mandates aren't going to force a protocol by themselves.
The marketplace is where v6 will be made or broken, and history shows
the marketplace has two requirements: need and painlessness.  This
might give the vendors a nudge, but it isn't going to be the reason
the Great Changeover happens.
