(I work for a not-quite-as-large content player. These are my own
opinions, but this is what I'd tell my empolyer if they asked.)
- We can't get provider-independent IPv6 space (without pretending
to be a service provider.)
- None of our transit providers appear to provide IPv6 transit.
Or if they do, they keep it pretty quiet. (Does UUNET?)
- Most of our content is delivered via load balancer hardware
that would also need to support IPv6. Last time I checked,
- There are (perceived to be) more important things to spend
our limited resources on.
