That's the only way to stem the plundering.

This should be the case Mukom. Probably we should start by people in this
list giving their experience and the challenges they get on changing from
NAT. I remember at the University of Nairobi, all hosts were on private
addresses, but a year before rolling out v6, we acquired enough v4 blocks
from our local RIR (KENET), and ensured all hosts are on public v4. One
challenge is the network has grown since then and we have again run out of
public v4
