Obviously, they deployed IPv6 for other reasons, and it would be far

IPv6 deployment is not a short-term answer to IPv4 exhaustion. Can we 
please just put this to rest?

But it will reduce the dollars that need to be spent to continue
to prop up IPv4.  Every IPv6 packet sent is one less packet that
needs to be processed by the CGN *farm*.

Split the bill so you can see the IPv4 and IPv6 traffic components
and add a CGN loading on the IPv4 traffic.
