Toll applicable.". This is a good reason for every major service provider to request some IPv6 space, ensure that future equipment acquisitions support v6, and have someone playing with it in the lab. Not a very good reason to deploy. Why do so many v6 folks fill their arguments with notes of alarmism? Why don't we just make an orderly migration when it is called for, rather than using hyperbole to scare people? Of course, making IPv4 a fungible commodity would help with this (yes, I'm a broken record). When prices get too high, you know its time for v6. > > > Regards, > Daniel -- Daniel Golding
