I was not saying governments initiatives could not increase IPv6
deployments. It was the other way instead.

My only concern with them (to be exact with people involved) is that
they tend to have more rights than duties towards citizen. Hopefully

Governments may help yes but it's much a matter of combined efforts who
can prevail here in my humble opinion.
