and ISP's should plan on how to do traffic management/engineering in that
new world (so start poking your head into the current v6 multihoming
'solution' == shim6) , and vendors should plan on performance at the
current level or likely better for bandwidth, pps, route-changes/sec,
routing table size... (listen to your customers who are hopefully saying
this too?)

Oh, and some security thought should probably be had as well... both for
applications/os's and networking equipment.
