Re: absense of multicast deployment
By everything I can tell, it's roughly about 10% for global deployment, see
and is becoming basically BCP in the enterprise IPTV environment (which are currently all
"walled gardens"). (Note that this deployment is effectively entirely ASM / IGMP v2.)
By any measure, multicast deployment is much larger than IPv6 deployment at present, and it is growing.
I will be glad to argue the point to any length you might desire.
Of course, the deployment did not exactly take the form that was anticipated in 2000...

There's a compelling need for usable multicast in many environments, and so far there's nobody (in the US) with a compelling need for IPv6, much less shim6.If there's such a compelling need for native multicast, why has it seen such limited deployment, and why is it available to such a tiny proportion of the Internet?
