Facebook operates a completely different model from us. They 
can afford to do this because it might not hurt productivity 
as much, or because the engineering teams over there will 
quickly fix it.

In my case, do we turn off customer's IPv4 service so they 
can think about IPv6?

We certainly can't turn off internal users (who have no 
technical inclination and couldn't care less whether their 
e-mail rocked in on IPv4 or motor vehicle).

There is a practical restriction here that can't be solved 
by "teaching lessons".
