Not speaking directly for my employer (in any official capacity
that is), but it's is *not* as easy as as just IPv6 enabling our network,
enabling ipv6 on the servers, and putting up ipv6.yahoo.com. Currently,
the biggest roadblock we have is loadbalancer support (or, more
specificly, lack of thereof) for IPv6 (hell, we still can't even get a
stable version of code that does IPv4 SACK/other useful tcp options in
some LB modes).
Once we get past that, I'm sure something else will be an issue
(as it has in the past), but believe me, we *are* actively working towards
v6, it is just a slow process right now with a lot of moving pieces, and
an obvious mandate not to negatively impact the current v4 infrastructure...
