But assuming you want > to use it, Google "needs" is, IMHO.) sure, but we were driving down the road of 'perhaps vint is doing v6 evangelism, and google will light v6 on all their services'... so they need SOMETHING v6-ish, either PI or PA from all of their providers, theoretically either would work for them. > > Care to explain why you think so? In the current v6 multi-homing world you just get a new ip for each provider you add to your network... you don't NEED PI space, unless you are going to be a provider (or have a plan to service more than 200 customers in the next 12 months). So, say google just wants the quick and dirty solution with little ARIN interaction, they 'force' their providers (probably most already do this) to get v6 access to them, then they live in the world of multiple ips/host (one per provider) and then would do the shim6 lovin'.
