What do you mean you want to be able to reach and be reachable by more than
20% of the internet?

I'm all for IPv6 deployment and I go so far as to push it onto customers
(and configure things correctly so that they have a good IPv6 experience)
who otherwise wouldn't even know anything about it or care at all, but to
pretend that one can subsist without at least some IPv4 space to facilitate
translation at this stage is just unrealistic.
