    Forget content, they're just along for the ride.

    When most service providers have eye-wateringly shite CGNs acting
    as intermediaries between eyeballs and content, the content providers
    will be motivated to move to v6 even if only as a means of damage

    Ah, that's something we don't have. Our customers own their own
    (which has its own slew of problems: I can't make them upgrade,
    and if I tell them they'll have to spend a hundred bucks to restore
    the functionality I broke for them last week I'll have a revolt
    on my hands...)
