How is this a misconception?  It works fine for me...

Imagine an operator who is v6 ignorant, with a home provider who implements v6 half-assed, and tries to access a v6 
site that has perhaps v6-only accessible nameservers, when their provider who 'offers' v6 has resolvers that operate 
only over v4.

*huge* misconception about the operational status of IPv6 (imho).


By that definition, IPv4 is non-operational.

You can break anything if you try hard enough.

This being well demonstrated by most of the "Internet" access provided
by hotels, for example.
