I think the answer to this question depends upon the type of network (ie. mobile, internet application hosting, fixed line broadband, etc). DS-LITE would scale well, but would require CPE that obviously supported this feature. NAT64 is simple, but it presents issues with tethering v4 devices among other issues. It is quite possible that dual stack to subscribers will be common, with private IPv4 and public IPv6. The service provider would natively route IPv6 and perform NAT44 for IPv4.
