I went out  3 years ago and bought a cablemodem and a router that are *also*
not IPv6 ready, because it made economic sense at the time (Got them on sale,
they had every *other* feature I needed, they were easier/cheaper to find at
Best Buy than IPv6-ready gear, Comcast has yet to deploy IPv6 in my area, and
they were cheap enough I don't mind forklift-upgrading them when IPv6 becomes
actually available here.).  They'll probably get replaced within 48 hours of it
being *worth* replacing them.

But at the time, paying literally twice as much for a box that had a feature I was
not likely to be able to use before the box needed replacing *anyhow* didn't make
any economic sense.
