I'd like to call your attention to slide 8, the chart showing growth
in fully working IPv6 deployments. Should that growth trend be allowed
to continue, IPv4-only deployments can be expected to fall into the
minority after another few hundred years.
The upcoming conversion of IPv4 addressing into a zero-sum game (as a
result of free pool depletion) is likely to increase this growth
trend, but it's anybody's guess whether the new growth trend improves
to something with a faster-than-linear feedback loop. And of course
once free pool depletion hits, the cost to deploy additional IPv4
systems starts to grow immediately, independent of pre-majority IPv6
We might want to consider additional public policy incentives to kick
the IPv6 growth rate into a higher gear.
