This type of marketing approach was pursued doggedly for many of the 
early years of IPv6 rollout. It was as misguided then as it was 

If you have plenty of IPv4 space, you have no case for IPv6. (And I say 
that as one of the most enthusiastic proponents of it.) OTOH, if you 
are/might/will be approach(ing) any kind of IPv4 capacity limitation, 
then you want to start deploying IPv6 ASAP.

The other case that makes business sense is a content provider with a 
lot of traffic. You can get different, and often better, peering 
relationships over IPv6; and there are a lot of eyeball networks, 
especially mobile providers, who are using it natively nowadays.

hope this helps,
