Suggestion as to how to get to the "universal deployment of IPv6" (in the infamous words of the IETF "Scotch BoF")?

Well - it depends if you think that's a worthwhile goal ;)

To my mind IPv6 is a sad case of "second system syndrome". It will probably get there in the end (all those addresses come in very handy for IoT, container networking etc.) but it has all been so much more painful than it needed to be - but alas it's too late now to do something better.
