    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.


        too right. (having the scars from the OSI compliance tussle)
        the point being that this is one more grain added to the side of
        "IPv6 in my lifetime..."  DISA does occasionally have some
        impact on the marketplace that the rest of us play in.

        speaking of which, v6 zelots and cheerleaders may find this
        URL interesting:     http://www.usipv6.com/
