Hisham, two other items that come to mind:
o I think we should also have a team looking at CPE.
This is going to be very critical, especially in
broadband deployments (wired and wireless, copper
and fibre, consumer and enterprise, e.t.c.).
Without CPE that is cheap and easy to pick up that
someone can DIY and start running/testing IPv6, we
won't be able to feasibly deploy IPv6 into homes
and small businesses.
o Not sure whether one of the groups you've already
created is looking at transition mechanisms
(although integration is probably a more
meaningful term). It would be nice to have some
folk working on what will happen when ISP's are
assigning only IPv4 addresses to customers, and
those customers need some way to be able to talk
to the legacy IPv4 Internet without much or any
This is not another item, but if one of the existing groups
can be tasked with working on minimum equipment/software
requirements that organizations can use when trying to
purchase IPv6-capable equipment/software, that would be good
too. As of now, most organizations (governmental and
private) have no idea how to run purchase tenders that
should include IPv6 compliance.
I'm more than happy to help, of course, on this task force,
