I'd like to see the results of such an experiment. I suspect 90% of their  
users wouldn't even notice. (given how many don't even realize IPv6 is on,  
until some site(s) run dog slow until they're told (how) to turn IPv6 off.)

Not counting MAC users, because they cannot do DHCPv6 without 3rd party  
software.

Nobody really cared with they limited what RFC1918 space you could use.  
(not sure they're still doing that.)
