I disagree. If the home user market needs to know or care about which version of the Internet Protocol is being used, or even know what the Internet Protocol is, things have gone wrong. Some parts of the corporate market do need to know but not most small and medium sized businesses. They just buy packaged services and can legitimately expect them to work as expected.

The providers on the list at http://www.worldipv6launch.org/measurements/ with the big IPv6 deployments didn't survey their residential customers and ask them which version of IP they'd prefer. They made IPv6 an integral component of their systematic network upgrade.
