I am very impressed at Cloudflare’s forward thinking to force investing a significant amount of IPv4 infrastructure. This will obviously become even more important in the future as IPv6 withers away and is replaced by IPv4.

And, I repeat, please tell me how many end users know about or care about DNS, even after reading snake oil advertisements.
