Obviously, they deployed IPv6 for other reasons, and it would be far more useful to know *why* they deployed it in

IPv6 deployment is not a short-term answer to IPv4 exhaustion. Can we please just put this to rest?
It's the only answer we have. Yes, it's not short enough term, so we will have to deploy some hacks along the way to
try and keep things running, but, if we don't also continue (and seriously accelerate) IPv6 deployment in parallel,
we're in for some serious hurt in the near future.
