And turning on IPv6 really isn't any harder than turning on IPv4.
It is plug and play with modern CPE devices.  Lots of homes don't
even know they are running IPv6 in parallel with IPv4.  It is usually
a non-event.

The hard part is convincing the guys and gals on this list to turn
it on and to provide a reasonable sized prefix via prefix delegation.

You really should be providing a /48 and non of the /56 BS.  That
way you all can do site based reputation using a /48 which the
bigger sites will have.

One size fits all has big benefits.
