And every time I've made the effort to do that (admittedly, not a small effort), that product or line of product has had IPv6 available for it within about a year or so (if not sooner).

About 10 years ago I was involved in a project where we were looking for one or two dozen or so gigabit ethernet switches. That order would have barely broken into six figure territory. One sales engineer came around with their product and I remarked "no jumboframe support? your competitors all do 9000 bytes!" A week later, he was back with a newer version of the same box... with 64000-byte jumboframe support.  :-)
