Re: Just look at IPv6?

Well, enterprise happens to be most likely place to find IPv4-ONLY equipment: acquired before IPv6 was a thing yet too indispensable and/or too expensive to replace. You can't roll out IPv6 selectively because the old stuff will lose touch with complicated bodges, becoming a case of "If it ain't broke..." best not to rock the boat internally and address external IPV6 needs via specialized structures: dedicated subnets, gateways, proxies, etc.
