The pressure is mounting:
a) IANA will run out of IPv4 /8's by February, with the RIR's mostly
running out in 2011-2013, ISP's in 2012-2013.
So if you want new IPv4 space bigger than a /24 after 2013, be
prepared to bribe someone to transfer it to you.
b) Federal agencies have a FY12 deadline to support IPv6 externally,
and a FY14 deadline to support it internally.
c) Verizon's LTE network went live last Sunday, and the USB dongles
are dual-stack-lite, meaning native v6, carrier NAT44.
If you have an asian supply chain or mobile users accessing your
web sites, you need to be working on IPv6 *NOW*.
