Like you, I would like to be optimistic about many v4-only apps and
v4-only devices becoming dual-stack sooner than later.

But knowing that a significant (50%+) of android devices may not support
IPv6 (just like my brand new Samsung Galaxy 7'' tablet (just bought over
the weekend) being v4-only) and may not be upgraded by their users to the
right software, and that Skype etc. apps are out there, my optimism fades

Dual-stack in the home networks will stay with us for a long time

I disagree. I think that v4-only apps and devices will get relegated to
being connected through v4-v6 adapter appliances until they are fixed.

IPv4 is simply going to become far too expensive to maintain to be able
to deliver it for residential pricing.

Of course, this doesn't mean that the ISP access needs to stay
dual-stack, thanks to MAP, 464XLAT etc.

Right... Those are some of the ways that maintaining IPv4 will become so
expensive. ;-)
