I am having a hard time describing to everybody involved the difference 
between "all resources are not IPv6 enabled" and "the IPv6 enabled 
resources need to have full functionality".

I am in talks with people at Arbetsförmedlingen (via their website), 
department of commerce (personal connection), and the swedish 
telecommunications regulatory entity (people responding on my initial 
inquiry, plus escalation to their highest manager).

One thing that makes people wake up a little bit is when I say it's better 
if 0 swedish goverment agencies IPv6 enable by 2016, instead of 1 of them 
doing what Arbetsförmedlingen did, and ask their *users* to turn off IPv6 
to get basic functionality.

It's ok to have limited IPv6 enablement, but the one you IPv6 enable 
should have full functionality. *Never* ask user to turn off IPv6, then 
you're doing it wrong.
