According to
http://www.nytimes.com/external/idg/2008/10/28/28idg-10-best-feature.html
Windows 7 will have a cool feature called DirectAccess that "requires
deploying IPv6 and IPsec".  I know nothing more of this feature than is
in the article, but if accurate it may create a client-centric demand
for v6, i.e., desirable new functionality that isn't available on v4.

Of course, Windows 7 will have to ship first, and then get deployed in
the enterprise...
