"Historic" usually refers to "stuff we've managed to mostly stamp out production

So it boils down to "Do you think that once that camel has gotten its nose
into the tent, he'll ever actually leave?".

(Consider that if (for example) enough ISPs deploy that sort of migration
tool, then Amazon has no incentive to move to IPv6, and then the ISP is stuck
keeping it around because they don't dare turn off Amazon).
