This is "last century's process":  wait for customers to ask for IPv6,
which they will not do, and then you can prove to your management that 
"there is no demand", so you can continue to not roll out v6.

If we ever want to reach the point when we can stop bothering with
IPv4 on the server side, IPv6 needs to be on by default on *ALL* 
access.  Not opt-in.  Not "it will take another 20 years".
