Uh, whut? I expect my ssh sessions to survive a 4G->3G handover, and if
they happen to go over IPv6, I want them to survive.
The important reason to upgrade is to get higher speeds, not to get access
to new L3 tech.

I don't agree with you at all. I don't believe I would lose the stream
when doing that handoff in our network, it might buffer some more (because
EDGE is slower than HSDPA), but you wouldn't lose the stream.
Consistent behaviour (apart from speed) on all networks is really
important for me, and I'd imagine it is for most users as well.
