What about security that we have heard for the last 10 years will be built-in and still is not, when we use IPSEC for IPv4 daily even across NAT? > we just need to put more effort on things like > multihoming support for ipv6 Kind of ironic this is addressed to _me_ > continuing ipv4 for next 100 years is not an option in my view Not in mine either but it's not an excuse to defend a failure. I know lots of people that could have done without the mandatory ISDN upgrade; as of myself I intend not to spend millions on IPv6 upgrades to get the same brilliant success ISDN had reaching each home and each office in America.
