And therein lies the rub...

Vendors charge more to their customers for IPv6 upfront.  But in the ISP
space at least, IPv6 is just IP - there is no additional revenue stream
to pay for this.  So where does the money come from to pay for it?

I'm not saying it *should* be free - just that deployment is delayed.
