Since they charge $3k when you enable it + add $3k to your monthly bill for having it enabled I doubt that many customers would be happy with that... (the numbers are what I heard from one Akamai customer, they might vary)

Akamai seems to think IPv6 is something you can sell for additional fees... :-(
