Improving IPv6? Keep up the good work and thank you.

Protesting IPv4 efforts? Not very altruistic, more like you are 
motivated by various deep-seated emotional responses to the continuation 
of the IPv4 internet.

The true dilemma is that any amelioration of IPv4 scarcity may indeed 
contribute to further delaying mass global IPv6 adoption, regardless of 
whose effort and time is involved.

And I find advocating for that to be wrong and perhaps to some extent, 
immoral. Unlikely to be productive. And potentially counter-productive.
