Sure, the Sun could explode tomorrow and all these IPv6 people will have wasted their lives. However the scenario is a common one and the timetable is well within the time period when IPv6 will be the main network technology (say 2015 - 2035+) so it should have been taken into account and judging on the fact that IPv6 *does* support billions of nodes and thousands of networks to every end site I guess it probably was. Making engineering decisions on the basis of "there is no chance" that is risky too, especially looking 40+ years into the future. -- Simon J.
