I'm a fool for doubting all these (to me) wildly overoptimistic
assertions about the coming ubiquity of native IPv6, end-to-end, heh.
Dual stack works with "everything". IPv6 only access does not (with
464XLAT it might). However, people are complaining that operators are
focusing more on CGN and NAT44(4) than they are on IPv6. Which I can
understand, but I believe we're getting closer to getting out of the dead
lock. My hope is that 2013 is going to be the year we're going to see
widespread IPv6 (dual stack) adoption on mobile devices outside of the US.
It's looking good so far.
People are advocating dual stack now (at least that's what I do), for a
future goal of IPv6 only.
The main problem with IPv6 only is that most app developers (most
programmers totally) do not really have access to this, so no testing is
