We essentially should be looking at data/indicators that are predictive of
IPv6 readiness and adoption. The specific set of things you start measuring
don't matter as much as continuously measuring it and refining it and tying
it to the ultimate thing you want - amount of IPv6 traffic being passed.

Or put t in R&D terms

a) Form a hypothesis about actions that will drive adoption
b) Find measures of those activities and measure them
c) Gather data
d) Analyse the data to to assess the hypothesis
e) Adapt the hypothesis based upon the data

The beauty of this model its that at step (d), you will know what
measures/actions are useful, which ones are useless and what new ones to
start measuring.
