That could be one of the things that helps spur v6 adoption - multicast 
being somewhat less of an afterthought :)

While v4 multicast works, and delivering video is one of the things it 
can do very well, some networks don't route v4 multicast or exchange 
v4 multicast prefixes, so its utility on a wide scale can be limited.
