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…

What does it say that the same thing happens in IPv4?

I really don't see a significant difference in that regard.

Yes, IPv6 is currently a little less fully baked than IPv4. IPv4 is 20
years older than IPv6, so I say that's to be somewhat expected.
