if you want v6 adoption... latency, path length, jitter, performance
all should closely match v4 specs. Expecting a US customer to be 'ok'
with 300ms to reach a US site 30 miles (as the crow flies) via
Germany... not good.

V6 so far doesn't have the same $$ and interest from the 'user' so
it's not being optomized yet. Or so it seems.
