from the point of view of cgnat scaling, a more useful figure would be 
the number of ipv6 "sessions" vs natted ipv4 sessions.  It's well 
established that many of the highest volume traffic sources on the 
internet are ipv6 enabled, but the long tail is definitely not.  I.e. 
throughput is not necessarily a useful data point for substantiating 
many of the claims that are made here and elsewhere about ipv6 popularity.
