Mike owns Hurricane Electric.  HE.net has the most v6 routes, peering,  
and pretty much any other metric you can dream up.  His .sig says  
"Wholesale IPv4 and IPv6 Transit".  What do you think his plan is?

More important question: Perhaps you should spend 15 seconds  
researching things before you send obviously ignorant comments to 10K  
of your not-so-close friends?
