Then, let's draw a distinction between the generally positive to 
can't-really-see-the-point attitude range which most people have towards 
ipv6 and the unparalleled derision and invective which the OSI camp was 
subjected to by large sections of the community before the final nails 
were hammered into its coffin.  Most people do not feel that ipv6 is a 
bad thing which should be put out of its misery with unseemly haste, 
even if the same people may tend to feel apathetic about it.
