This also proves one big thing to all the people complaining about
getting a TLA. If the BBC can get it, any large organization can get

The BBC are probably a bad example in this case, they're more of an ISP/Content Provider than a typical Enterprise. They're also considerably larger than the typical SME requiring multihoming, which is I think where the sticking point will be with IPv6.
