I'd still say that for uptake across the board the mid/small business
(and even large business) isn't relevant. The numbers of these are so
small as to be insignificant to the problem.

Solving the problem for end-users seems like where ISP folk should
spend their time, and really it's in their best interest to do that so
they can keep expanding their customer base as ipv4 resources become
less available in their networks and globally.
