If it continues. The sad thing is, transition would have been a lot 
smoother if not for IETF politics. "You can't have these features! It's 
not IPv4! They would work perfectly fine, but we don't want you to do that!"

I still know a LOT of people who have no desire to switch. They are 
holding out until vendors implement the features they want. NAPTv6, 
default router in DHCPv6, etc, etc.
