i looked at ipv6 a long long long time ago.
i take a look every now and again too.
they put too much unnecessary nonsense ion ipv6 and tried to persuade people it was a good thing.
no nat by design
every thing publicly addressable by design
the ip address being derived from the MAC address permitting device tracking by design (ok mainly addressed now)
etc etc etc
