Increased traffic from less-geeky people = more sane numbers overall.  The 
problem with the graphs on that site is that the audience is self 
selecting; so only when some major site says "go here!" do we get a more 
random(ish) audience, versus people setting up tunnelbrokers and the like.

You're assuming there's significant rollout of IPv6.  Everything I've seen 
so far says that *starts* nowish, and more laterish this year, in any 
impacting way.  Really, we're just just before the start of getting end 
user adoption to start rising.
