Those are different things and I can't agree with you.

I¹m not saying that using a translator is the best thing to do. I will
prefer not to go that way, and that requires the services and contents to be
dual-stacked, but is better a translator than nothing if no other way.

Regarding the relays (I guess you mean relay when talking about gateways),
they are part of the transition, and they are required. You like it or not.
Actually I think they are a very good thing.

Unfortunately, we can't agree all to just switch off all the Internet,
upgrade to IPv6 and disable IPv4, so transition is needed and it is a smart

I believe that using a gateway or a translation device for ipv6-ipv4 just
gives people an excuse to ignore ipv6. I really do believe that if ipv6 is
to go full scale we have to jump in with everything ipv6 only or ipv4 the
intermediate will just postpone the inevitable.

Take that from experience, give the suits an out and they will take it
rather than taking the advised path which may cost more now but less down
the road when you have to pry it out of people to abandon the translation
