Hmmm, considering that most of the growth of the Internet might come from
mobile users, then perhaps the as many more of those become IPv6 capable,
wouldn't that be a good thing IPv6?

Not really a problem ...if a provider supports IPv6, then why would they
even sell CPEs that are not IPv6 capable?
Also, as the phenomenon of city-wide wifi becomes more popular, then the
determining device will become the operating system (Windows, Linux, MacOS,
Android, Symbian etc) and that seems to be getting better all the time.
