When we start migrating to IPv6, wouldn't state-aware forwarding be
required for a good part of the traffic that is being translated from
customer IPv6 to a legacy IPv4 ?

I'm a personal fan of topology-based forwarding, but this is limited
to the address space of the topology we currently use, which is
running out of space in a few years (few meaning whatever version of
the IPv4 RIRs deadline you believe in).
