I think it should be reclassified from never going to be used into some
part of the internet might actually do something with it. Its important
that happens now, better late then never. Whether its GUA or not or a
mix of whatever, whether it buys months or years will depend greatly on
how its actually used if it is ever used.
You may be right about not being worth it. More importantly, you may be
wrong. IPv6 is replete with not only a plethora of wrong predictions,
but the same ones over and over again. To be clear, the only effort
asked from the unwilling is to support cutting the red tape frustrating
the willing. A hearty round of knock yourself out from the right folk in
the right place and time and we dont have to debate this particular
point ever again.
How are we to ever find out who is right if that never happens? That
alone is enough reason for me.

That Ipv6 address allocation schemes and proposals tended to enlarge
over time, using up more bits heading from right to left.

To the next time then.
