Publicly held corporations are responsible to their shareholders to get 
eyeballs on their content. *That* is their job, not promoting cool new 
network tech. When you have millions of users hitting your site every 
day losing 1/2000 is a large chunk of revenue. The fact that the big 
players are doing world IPv6 day at all should be celebrated, promoted, 
and we should all be ready to take to heart the lessons learned from it.

The content providers are not to be blamed for the giant mess that IPv6 
deployment has become. If 6to4 and Teredo had never happened, in all 
likelihood we wouldn't be in this situation today.
