And you don't need to be pushing this to customers immediately to be  
getting ready. As discussed at NANOG37, Comcast is pushing out IPv6  
initially to manage cable modems and set-top boxes (http:// 
www.nanog.org/mtg-0606/durand.html). While this doesn't benefit  
customers directly, it gets the routing environment set up to handle  
IPv6, it gets the operational staff up to speed, and lays the  
groundwork and infrastructure for when consumer IPv6 is more of a  
reality.
