....if for example, the top ten sites on Alexa had some IPv6 health-check
code on their home page, we would likely cover over 90% the market in one
fell swoop.  At that point, end-users would be at least somewhat minimally
aware of the issue.

Thanks, but what I had in mind wasn't really for me, but for "us" 
(everybody here) to try major sites to implement into their code, so it'd 
need to be written up by someone who understand how webmasters work and 
what information they need.

So, a bit more polished and "packaged". I'm going to pitch the idea to 
some other people as well and see if someone might bite and do some work 
in this area...
