I really hope you are right, because I don't want to see that either, 
however...

Why do you suppose they did that before with IPv4?  Sure you can make the 
argument NOW that v4 is in scarce supply, but 10 years ago it was still 
the case.

Has Comcast actually come out and committed to allowing me to have as my 
IPs as I want on a consumer connection in the most basic, cheapest 
package?  Has any other major provider?
