Some think it's worth the price. In many cases, the price (in terms
of money, at least) is zero.
In any case, the users are given the opportunity to run applications
which leverage IPv6, with or without support from their ISPs or sites.
If they don't want to, that's another issue..
As of transition mechanisms, they're not good enough to run an
IPv6-only network, which in turns makes dual-stack mandatory.
No problem, because IPv6-only networks don't make sense anyway.
However, the transition mechanisms that have been deployed seem to be
good enough to enable dual-stack deployments.
