And heck, you don't even need to get rid of XP for IPv6 -- just enable the stack.  (It's not the greatest implementation, but 
`ipv6 install` is still an easier sell than "replace your computer.")

This will work until you no longer have an IPv4 resolver available for DNS. After that, XP fails miserably.

I could only wish the biggest software barrier to disabling IPv4 on local networks was XP's DNS resolver path.

Doing away with IPv4 isn't a sane short-term goal for anyone carrying along software as old as XP anyway; I'd focus on getting IPv6 to all of the things and marginalizing IPv4 destinations to the point that CGN is of reduced impact and concern.

 Oh, and a pony.
