I think we're in violent agreement.  :-)

The point basically being that regardless of how quickly one completes 
one's own transition to IPv6, there will be a lot of people still using 
IPv4 out there for a long time, and as such, you and your customers will 
continue to need to be dual-stacked for a long time, and as long as your 
customers need to be dual-stacked, you'll need to be able to give them 
at least a few IPv4 addresses as well as the IPv6 addresses which we hope 
they'll be primarily using.
