Re: This just in.....IETF announces IPv7

This is exactly what v6 does. The "compatibility mode" is v4. What else were you expecting it to be?

And in fact v6 has NAT64, which basically places the v4 address space into a v6 /96 so that v6-only clients can talk to v4-only servers. Is that somehow not good enough for you?
