I think it is far too early to judge how many end sites might find shim6 an acceptable solution, however -- I'd wait for some measurement and modelling before I made declarations about that, and the measurement and modelling is arguably of limited use until the protocol elements come out of the oven.
I don't think it's a foregone conclusion that edge-adaptive traffic engineering (along the lines of that carried out by many peer-to-peer applications) is necessarily inferior to traffic engineering carried out by upstream ISPs, however, which is something that I often hear. The balance of goodness depends on far too many variables to pre- judge, and there are philosophical arguments in favour of both approaches.
