If you want to deploy IPv6 NOW you will do it with the tools available NOW.
There might be use cases with a real problem, but usually the problem is at
layer 8/9.

We had our share of difficulty with deploying IPv6, but the problems were
in the implementations not the standards.

I think it is naive to believe some people would deploy IPv6 if it was just
a bit more like IPv4. No, they still would ignore it. Because the real
reason was never anything to do with IPv6, but simply that they do not see
any reason to do it. If these people wanted to do it, they would do it.
Instead they make up excuses. You are wasting your time if you try to adapt
to made up excuses.
