Well, they still have plenty time... ;-))
What was the estimated count-down date? 31-july-2011
And since a couple of months the depletion-speed is getting faster, it
used to be end 2011.

Does it matter a lot for the coffeeshops - don't they just use an
RFC1918 network NAT'ed to a single IP from their provider?

I think the ones who need to see the light are the access providers, but
I have read or been told that the issue there is the availability of
consumer-level IPv6-cabable CPE.

I was tempted to write the same
For any costomer it doesn't matter what address he got,
But what if he tries to reach an IPv6-only site?

That would only work if the customer has an rfc1918 adres, but the site
has his own transparant squid proxy and the possibility to reach bot v4
and v6 network...
