ASNV6, no clue... but 32-bit ASN are already prepared, at least in
the registry world.

	It was just a joke, since the AS is getting high up there
in the 2 byte range (2/3's of the available ones down I think) and
was implying that moving to 4 byte would be as fast/efficient/complete
as going to IPV6 (Not...)

That's actually something funny......
We'll probably run out of v4 addresses sooner than 2 byte ASN, however, globally it seems more pieces of the puzzle are in place for the latter "revolution".

But then again... IPv6 is a long run thing. Most people still don't understand how IPv4 works... :-)
