Dual stack w/ CGN for IPv4.  That can be supplied a number of ways
and it has more limitations for IPv4 that conventional CPE based
NAT.

Turning on dual stack, even at this late stage, lights up IPv6,
moves most of the traffic to IPv6 so that CGN's don't need to be
so beefy, and doesn't mean that you have to have perfect IPv6
everywhere when you turn on IPv6.
