Given yesterday's RIAA victory in their lawsuit in Minnesota, I expect the
RIAA will start lobbying for more ways to easily identify the individual
users/computers - the easiest way to do *that*, of course, is to give each
computer a truly unique address rather than allow some unknown number of
authorized and freeloading computers to all hide behind one NAT on a wireless
cable/DSL modem.

I predict this will finally be the Killer App that IPv6 has been waiting for. :)
