That is the point of why it needs to be someone like the US Government
and/or DoD saying "be available by IPv6 or you will get no work." It'll
force their all of suppliers/contractors to go to their vendors saying
"We need IPv6 capable stuff on the Internet. If you can't supply us, we
will go to someone who can/will."
