I think it's a little more complex.
I think there are two lines. A line representing brokenness with AAAA records
enabled and a line representing brokenness without AAAA records.
The first line is trending downwards while the second line is trending upwards
and wil soon be making a rather pronounced increase in its slope.
When these two lines cross, I think it will become virtually inevitable that
those who are ready to do so will publish their AAAA records.
