besides the multicast argument, ipv6 and the transition to it
with dual stacks, etc, etc, afaik will require more horsepower
and memory to handle routing info/updates, don't think so
it will reduce energy consumption au contraire.

one place where major improvements can be made is to
increase the efficiency of switched power supplies on servers
and other gear installed in large datacenters.
