These are my own opinions, but this is what I'd tell my empolyer if they asked.) - We can't get provider-independent IPv6 space (without pretending to be a service provider.) - None of our transit providers appear to provide IPv6 transit. Or if they do, they keep it pretty quiet. (Does UUNET?) - Most of our content is delivered via load balancer hardware that would also need to support IPv6. Last time I checked, it didn't. - There are (perceived to be) more important things to spend our limited resources on. Steve
