I assume that you mean that the IPv6 model will be changed, no?  
Because I hope that it has become clear from this thread that the 
adoption of IPv6 by a significant amount of players currently reachable 
over IPv4 is far from certain, and unless IPv6 offers at least feature 
compatibility it may not even happen.

Why should a certain business model be forced upon you?  To multihome 
right now you need to cough up some money for equipment and some clue 
for configuration.  Why would IPv6 require you to change your business 
model to achieve the same?

That is, of course, insane.  IPv6 addresses are far from rare.  Why do 
you a priori rule out applications like https and virtualisation?
