Not necessarily, depends on how you phrase it.

We aren't there yet (still), but eventually, giving people who connect
via IPv4 to web services the usual info delay splashscreen saying:
"You are connecting via IPv4. This is the legacy Internet protocol
which won't be supported that much longer. Please talk to your provider
about your options for using the current Internet protocol (IPv6)."
will not point fingers at IPv6, but at IPv4.

Maybe in 2020 ...
