I expanded to try and get you to see the point.  I obviously failed.   
I shall not bother to try again as I'm worried the failure was at  
least partially because you would rather be pithy than see the point  
not matter how fully explained.

As for facts, there is lots of basis.  HE has run a network for  
decades and has never let a v4 bifurcation happen so long.  Ever.   
They've run v6 for a few years yet it happened.  Asking the network in  
question's view on this perfectly reasonable - in fact the opposite  
would be unreasonable.

As for accusations, I challenge you to show where I accused them of  

Typing less does not mean you are actually thinking.  You should try  
the latter before your next pithy post.  Or at least read the post to  
which you are replying.
