What I continuously remind myself is the transformation of the
internet from 10 years ago to now. When you look at what has happened
in comparison, I wouldn't rule this out at all. Obviously IPv4 is going
to be the primary for internetworks for some time but I do expect
traffic levels at the IPv6 exchanges to pick up. Personally, I find
some mirrors I connect to have a IPv6 address where they don't
rate-limit it, so when the next release of RH/FreeBSD come out, it's
quicker to download via IPv6 than IPv4 as there are no contention issues
for gaining access to the ftp server.
I see people doing IPv6 deployments but not quite as fast as
the IPv4 deployment speed of the past 10 years, but with most sites
enabled in the next 3-5 years at most.
