The fine folks at NetBSD really need to update their IPv6 FAQ.  That  
stuff looks like the IPv6 marketing spiel from 1997 or so that has  
long ago been proven ... 'optimistic'.

Unfortunately, you still see the same sort of grandiose claims being  
made at non-technical (particularly governmental policy-related)  
events.  As for accuracy, IPv6 does provide more address space, the  
headers are simpler, and stateful auto-config is often provided if you  
want it.  3 out of 7...
