The really scary thing is that in areas where there are only two major 
ISPs, both might go for CGN and then you have no choice.

The important thing is to have proper competition, that's the way 
innovation gets into the market.

On the other hand, I have little problem in seeing a future with different 
service offerings, one being "IPv4 only behind CGN" and another being 
"globally routable IPv4 address with 6to4 support" and a third being 
"globally routable IPv4 address with native IPv6 and a /56 (or /48)".
