Perhaps you'd like to give your real name then. Because you seem to demonstrate a total lack of understanding of why v6 was designed in the way that it is, and the problem you'd create by introducing your proposal.

(which is to say that you'd still have to update every bit of network infrastructure anyway, as has already been largely done for v6 - but you'd get few of the benefits of v6)

The IPv6 debate is settled. It's happening whether the luddites like it or not.
