Re: European ISP enables IPv6 for all?

In my opinion there is two type of users as usually ISP services are marketed:
1. Home user - not really interested in configuration of their devices - they just want Internet (now IPv4, soon IPv4 and IPv6) connectivity: They generaly don't use more than one LAN internally. All their devices are connected either directly to ISP device or to the home-gateway purchased at the cornet. In this case the /64 with autoconfiguration is the best option. User don't have to configure anything (may be enabling IPv6 on their computers).
2. Power users/business users - they can configure their devices, and they want measured and reported SLAs. If they want IPv6 they can articulate their needs: /64, /60, /56, or /48 with prioritisation, filtering
and other business needs. In this case DHCPv6 prefix delegation seems to be the most flexible solution. Since they can configure basic things on their device. The ISP can help them and negotiate accordingly...
In my opinion 99% of the users belongs to the home user category. However I think 80% the IPv6 traffic volume will be generated by power/business users.
If you think you can contribute, IETF v6ops welcomes you.
