DSLite and CGN appears to be a bit risky for certain things and I think
a lot of power-users would be more comfortable knowing they have at
least one IPv4 address on their own device, even if it is dynamic.

Is it possible to get regular dual-stack either using Virgin Media's
business plans or any of the DSL providers, either as residential or
business customer?

Otherwise I might just go for what appears to be the best regular IPv4
service and run IPv6 over VPN until the provider supports it natively.
