Owen tried to deny my point that:

: Moreover, it is easy to have a transport protocol with
: 32bit or 48bit port numbers with the end to end fashion
: only by modifying end part of the Internet.

As "the enterprise and last-mile areas" do not need to
be modified to accommodate a new transport protocol, they
belong to the center part.

Even though it may be easy to make end systems and local
LANs v6 capable, rest, the center part, of the Internet
keep causing problems.
