Yes, they prove that IPv6 is not a viable technology as it currently
stands and we should be working on the next big thing, of course!
IPv42, here I come!

On a serious note, though, really, what DOES it say about the real-world
maturity / actual chances of adoption for IPv6 that Charles' statement
above is, in fact, true?  Not trying to be anti-IPv6 or start a flamewar
(well, okay, I am trying to start a flamewar, that's what Sunday nights
are for :)), it's honestly something that puzzles me.  It just doesn't
feel right...

It doesn't say all that much, just that nothing ever changes in the world. Protocols have never been perfect, and probably never will be. Engineers and Ops have always struggled to make something that suits both worlds.
