Hi Mark,

I think Its more like trying to ensure we act on improving v6 adoption
rather than just believe, on the surface, 'oh yeah v6 is the way to go,
lets strategise, lets deploy, lets do this'; while in the background,  some
us are still more interested in the little left overs of v4 that smaller or
startup networks would need to also start to a certain level.

I think we're trying to make sure we create a comon understanding as a
comunity that the resources are limited and that we should bring heads
together through policies to fairly distribute and manage it for the
interest of ALL.

Maybe the big players should lead the v6 deployment by example and also
support schools, newer/smaller networks to follow the innovations.
