The issue is that the vendors aren't actually sure what to implement  
because there's a distinct lack of standards as opposed to competing  
drafts, p***ing contests, turf wars etc.

What exactly do I ask vendors (as a group) to implement so that when I  
do, it's what everyone else is going to be following the same path?

Is there actually a set of things that can be put together to work so  
that customer can experience hassle free internet in the same way as  
they do with IPv4?

My discussions with people in the last few weeks regarding where it's  
all at and how I might do IPv6 broadband have made me feel despair not  
happiness about the future with this.  It's people inside the  
standards bodies that also seem frustrated with this situation.
