The day passing without any significant userland issues would make it a success.

It's a good opportunity to ensure you have the right measurement tools in place so you can learn something from the day. For sites that have dual-stack deployed, a one-day peek into the future where perhaps 15% or more of external traffic will be IPv6 is pretty useful, given it's currently 1% or less.
