If you can imagine the internet in USA if Ma Bell hadn't been broken up,
you'd have a better idea of the Australian situation.

Agreed - I suspect NAT will delay things for a long, long, time.
The overseas experience *is* different.
Our (two) major ISPs have no plans to implement IPV6. And then there's
the NBN... (which also has no plans in the agreed infrastructure to
Smaller ISPs (iiNet, Internode, TPG and Adam Internet) have been running
dual stacks for some time - so I don't fear for choices. (but then I
