No, his "points" are strawmen. Nothing is perfect, and there are no
absolute guarantees of _anything_, but there are things which can
generally assumed to be work in practice (in particular anything
outside the current box).
If there are ipv6 / nfsv4 interoperability issues, that's a shame, but
it certainly shouldn't be used as an excuse to gimp the entire system,
when it may work fine for people using ipv4 and nfsv3...
That's what it sounds like Stephan is doing: "oh it can't be perfect,
so let's not even try to be good."
