Someone else has already pointed out the relationship of IPv6 now to
IPv4 20 years ago, but at the risk of flogging the horse what I get from
this is that what we're suffering from is a lack of operational
experience, combined with the fact that a significant percentage of the
early adopters have at least one toe in the "zealot" pool. :)
It's also worth pointing out that even today in IPv4 TI(still)MTOWTDI.
Witness the recent IS-IS vs. OSPF thread; or any of the other recurring
IPv4-only topics. If you think about it, this is a feature. If there was
only one right answer the world-wide market for network engineers would
be a lot smaller than it is now.
Nothin' ever doesn't change, but nothin' changes much.

Breadth of IT experience, and depth of knowledge in the DNS.
