They decided that the actual utilization of IPv4 address-space wasn't
nearly as bad as they had been saying, if they could make a little better
use of it.  Plus, it's a chicken-and-egg thing -- nobody uses it because
nobody uses it.

Remember, IPV6 addresses are 128 bits because a number of members of
the IPv6 working group didn't understand that 64 bits was significantly
more than twice the number of addresses than 32 bits.
