I'm not ignoring the real world. I know about the many existing
networks etc. However, that's no excuse to not move to IPv6 and
gradually get rid of the IPv4 stuff.

One excuse - lack of a business case? For my customer-side setup,
obviously I need to go IPv6, sooner rather than later. For my
back-office and local servers, there's no business case.

I'm primarily interested in the bottom line; what happens in the near
future might well affect that, but I don't see it affecting my use of
NAT on my local networks.
