[jjmb] turning off IPv4 is not realistic at this time and there are other
ways to encourage the use and adoption of IPv6.  Enabling by default,
requesting upgrades for existing products that introduce support for IPv6.
 Enabling IPv6 alone is a significant statement especially when your
business relies on the same.  The absence of IPv6 or broken IPv6 when your
business relies on it are no longer options.
