OK, this time it's for real: The last available IPv4 address block has gone

The lack of IPv4....

No one is going to move to IPv6 because of this, ISPs have plenty of IPv4 addresses, and not just that, they have the technical expertise to free many more in case they need them from their old networks.

All it does is increase the price of the commodity which has been made scarce, and prevents competition as the primary resource to start an ISP is IPv4 addresses.

Enjoy your IPv6 designed at a time where people couldn't possibly anticipate what its adoption would entail 20 years later.
