You are correct. Today, IP multicast is limited to a few small closed networks. If we ever migrate to IPv6, this would instantly change. One of my previous assertions was the possibility of streaming video as the major motivator of IPv6 migration. Without it, video streaming to a large market, outside of multicasting in a closed network, is not scalable, and therefore, not feasible. Unicast streaming is a short-term bandwidth-hogging solution without a future at high take rates.
So you are of the opinion that inter-domain multicast doesn't exist today for technical reasons, and those technical reasons are fixed in IPv6?
