Reread what they wrote. IPv6 is "foundational" to the next-generation 
Internet. If it's not, then IETF should have added 96 bits and left the 
rest of it alone.

I can't blame Cisco for making sure how they implement the linksys is 
appropriate for the long term. It's important that they get certain 
things right, as future improvements of the Internet DO depend on IPv6 
being functional.
