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?

Someone else has already pointed out the relationship of IPv6 now to
IPv4 20 years ago, but at the risk of flogging the horse what I get from
this is that what we're suffering from is a lack of operational
experience, combined with the fact that a significant percentage of the
early adopters have at least one toe in the "zealot" pool. :)

It's also worth pointing out that even today in IPv4 TI(still)MTOWTDI.
Witness the recent IS-IS vs. OSPF thread; or any of the other recurring
IPv4-only topics. If you think about it, this is a feature. If there was
only one right answer the world-wide market for network engineers would
be a lot smaller than it is now.
