LSN won't be required by failure of access providers to migrate.

LSN will be required by failure of content providers to turn on AAAA.

LSN is required when access providers come across the following two
combined constraints:

	1.	No more IPv4 addresses to give to customers.
	2.	No ability to deploy those customers on IPv6.

For all but the most inept of access providers, they will have some ability
to put customers on IPv6 prior to the day they would have to deploy LSN.
