Given the widespread implementation of Happy Eyeballs, not really.

Even without it, Joe Q. Public is unlikely to even *know* it's anything to do 
with v6 - businesses who need CDN will vote with their feet and avoid 
companies who use their address space in such a way that global reachability 
isn't ensured.

At this point you come across as little more than a shill for the CDNs wanting 
to avoid implementing proper infrastructure and sensible routing policy.
