We are absolutely, definitively, completely and utterly out of IPv4 addresses, warns RIPE

Re: IPv6 not that hard... seriously

If you're using nat on the router anyway, why faf on with IPv6 inside your network.

v4 addresses are easier to deal with and there's little chance you'll use more than a 10.0.0.0/8

And dual stack on the router is not so hard ...

if people were not holding on to IPv4 unnesacarily, IPv4 would last some time yet, however, some minor tweaks to add more AS numbers would be nessacary.

a lot of IPv6 has back ported to v4 over the years, and the address space is exorbitant. I really dont see we will need to give 7 addresses to each atom of each person on earth and the space that takes up in headers is just a waste of resources and bad for the environment.
