Seriously.  If we run out of networks while handing out /48s, by migrating everything to HTTPS we can claw back the 16 bit 'port' field in the IP header and reassign it as part of the 140-bit IPv6.1 address space.

Mind you, the FCC will likely auction off those extra 16 bits to Amazon, so you'll need a Prime membership to use them.
