They're a cool thing for other reasons. If "more IP addresses" is the only motivation for using IPv6, it's really not enough. For environments where direct access to the internet isn't required, NAT serves perfectly well. There's also no *need* to use public IP's on a private internal-only network either, so it makes little sense to do so. The way I see it, there are a lot of reasons not to use IPv6..
