Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Japanese government did two things:

	- tax incentivise ipv6 compliance
	- make meaningful ipv6 compliance mandatory when dealing with Japanese
government technical contracts.

The effect of this was to 1) create a direct financial incentive to deploy
meaningfully, and 2) create an indirect financial incentive to deploy ipv6
meaningfully.  Spot the pattern here?
