Boy, this is drifting rather badly from the NANOG charter.

That said, let be disabuse you of a notion:   if someone wants to put up 
a web site, it's very, very easy to find a place that can provide an 
IPv4 IP address for the service.  It won't be a *private* IPv4 address, 
but...  Frankly, there are plenty of Web hosts that provide the service. 
  Not good enough?  Try using a cloud service to host your private WWW 

Still not good enough?  Use a Web host and its IPv4 access to layer-7 
proxy your IPv6-only web site.  Finding a Web hosting company with IPv6 
support is a little more effort.  Start with this list: 

When I was working for a Web hosting company, along with 60 or so 
shared-hosting servers, we had one monster CPanel server (offering 
dirt-cheap low-performance hosting) with more than 1,000 sites on it, 
served by a single IP address.
