Crap, I knew someone would catch that :-)...

Seriously, "are moving" is the operative term here. Those 
who are moving are the (new) ones that can't get IPv4 
anymore, and/or the (new) ones that can't get IPv4 anymore 
and don't want to mess about with translating 464646464...

I know, for example, that Facebook's backend communications 
are 95% based on IPv6, as of March this year. It's likely 
this could be 100% by now, but I have no updates since then.

My point is if new customers in the rest of the world are 
only getting IPv6, all the IPv4 configured on African 
devices won't help communications between Africa and those 
new customers.

Of course, I'm thinking a couple of years from now - but one 
has to start now.
