I am not sure it has to be free. It just has to be available. As long as
there is no valuable content in v6 that I can't get in v4 there will be no
user drive to change.

What might happen is that ISPs start using IPv6 for their (as example) DSL
services to work around addressing problems. But that is not a userdriven
demand.
