Fred, while I agree completely with this, we all need to understand that
it has another implication. If the customer is offered a snazzy new IPv6
device, using public address space, that fails to offer "plug it in and it
will work", then the customer is unlikely to buy it.
No argument. That, actually, is half of my point.
The assertion I replied to was that the thing the customer bought was
address isolation via private addressing. No, I assert, that isn't what he
bough. He bought "plug and play". Provide "plug and play", and he will buy
the new solution just as readily.
Your assertion is the flip side of the inference. Fail to provide "plug and
play", and the customer will not buy it.
