So I am the customer who *did* ask my home DSL provider for IPv6.  For the
very reasons expressed above I know I'm in the minority, which is precisely
why I made a point of asking on behalf of those who don't know they need it.

The answer I got was "we don't support IPv6 at the moment".  I asked if they
had a timeframe for deployment, so I'd know when to ask again.  The answer:
"we have no plans to support IPv6".

Unfortunately I think this is very common.  There's a catch22 here...
