It does not work.

IETF is making IPv6 more and more complex and less and less useful.

Applications do not help, either. If some valuable new application
is offered on IPv6, it will soon be available also on IPv4 with a
lot more servers and end users.

ISPs, by definition, do not use NAT. But, current policy of
usage based allocation motivates ISPs to be NAT-using-non-ISPs
rather than IPv6-ISPs. That's how north wind approach works.

Worse, ISPs trying to offer IPv6 service must also offer 6-to-4 NAT,
because most contents are in IPv4 world.
