That is why we are saying, lets practice what we preach...Right??  Mark
Tinka earlier indicated that most ISP's will announc their v6 to their
upstream but nothing much will happen at the core/service and we are
saying we should do just more than announcing the /48 and /32.

Well we are pushing more for its adoption from the grass-roots...first we
are also encouraging all down-stream customers with /48 allocation to
announce them and we want to see more dns and email and even websites
running v6.
