I think it's a question of price to create the service.

Newer plattforms have built in IPv6 in hardware so performance isn't an 
issue, the code base is maturing which is also a very important step 

In a couple of years it won't be so much an issue of "purchasing equipment
that can do IPv6" but more "turning it on" which is a huge difference when 
it comes to creating a service and deploying it. When IPv6 is in almost 
all newer IOSes and these get phased into production environments, I think 
we'll see much more IPv6 than today.

I know that I am not alone in considering IPv6 ability of hardware I am 
about to purchase that I believe will be around for 3-5 years.
