Re: The Choice: IPv4 Exhaustion or Transition to IPv6

That's the thing .. google's crawlers and search app runs at layer 7, v6 is an addressing system that runs at layer 3. If we'd (the community) got everything right with v6, it wouldn't matter to Google's applications whether the content came from a site hosted on a v4 address, or a v6 address, or even both.
If Google does not have v6 connectivity then how are they going to crawl those v6 sites?
