Microsoft's participation in World IPv6 day

As long % IPv6 content > % IPv6 eyeballs, I think the eyeball counts will
naturally go up over time.  As we're seeing today, content providers can add
IPv6 access to a greater percentage of their content in a few months than
what ISPs can do with a percentage of their customer base.

0.3% of access is fine, so long as the margin of broken stacks and 
deployments is low enough. If they find that keeping the content dual 
stacked has acceptable problems, then it's just a matter of access 
gearing up to match. The largest fear for content is to dual stack and 
have service levels go down. The only data we really get from this day 
is a better understanding of the service levels when dual stacked at 
major content sites. Some access providers may also determine mistakes 
in their networks, or isolation or MTU issues through transit providers.
