Ah, government memos. There's been ones mandating OSI protocols,
UNIX workstations for all government employees...
Government mandates aren't going to force a protocol by themselves.
The marketplace is where v6 will be made or broken, and history shows
the marketplace has two requirements: need and painlessness. This
might give the vendors a nudge, but it isn't going to be the reason
the Great Changeover happens.
