I strongly hope IPv6 will be ready by then - that is: available
everywhere, solid routing ("no worse than IPv4") and widespread support
in all applications.
OTOH, the past 9 years have made me come to the conclusion that the
large masses will only move if IPv4 starts to become unusable.
Total number of prefixes smaller than registry allocations: 94488
