Yes, Alain Durand of ICANN was saying this to everyone who cared to listen
in Dakar and even said to me "You are lying" after I responded to a fellow
that "IPv6 is the answer to IPv4 exhaustion"

I would really much like to find that presentation where he makes that
argument. I've been too shocked to respond because when you someone
brazenly says something like that it means one of two things

a) They've stumbled on an insight that the IETF, the RIRs and others have
b) Someone switched their meds :-)

If anyone has a link to that presentation, please share.
