If ISPs were to do what Mythic Beasts says they do, which is charge their users for address space, IPv6 is virtually free while IPv4 costs something.

This has already started to happen. For example my preferred hosting 
provider recently made the IPv4 address a line item on their invoices. 
The total price did not change. Customers can now save money by electing 
not to use IPv4. This makes sense for both the supplier and the customer 
and it will happen more and more. The cost of clinging to IPv4 will rise 
and it will become more visible.
