Not that I have any knowledge or expectations one way or another, but I
think there is a bit of an apples-to-oranges comparision going on here.

The Internet2 graphs all appear to be packets/octets whereas the other
estimates were for hits to a web site, which is probably more comparible
to flow counts than packet counts.  I quickly looked and didn't see any
flow charts in I2's Netflow site, but I'd be interested to see what 
percentage of I2's flow's are v6.

Eric :)
