Re: IPv4 sunset date set for 2019-12-31

Putting a sunset clause will happen but when it won't matter much. We are not there yet.
However, I could see it also coming from a vendor as a way to get customers to upgrade (after that date we will not support IPv4 anymore and provide patches for IPv4).

Not necessarily. If you announce that YOU will treat that date as a
sunset date for IPv4 and invite other organizations to sign up for the
declaration, you might be able to get a movement going. Alice's
Restaurant comes to mind as does the Cluetrain Manifesto.

That is too top down, and sounds too much like the ITU, a federation
I don't think that would work but a voluntary manifesto that people
could sign up to would work.
