You really think were going to have a crysis of IPV4 ? The day that people can't browse because their ISP has no more IP ?
No, I know we won't have a crisis, because ISPs like Bell can use private-network IP addresses for end-users and NAT them, and barely anybody would notice. Users who needed a dedicated IP could pay extra for one, and the 99% of the rest of people who just do normal stuff like surfing, email, netflix, etc. would be just fine behind NAT. For most people, there would be no perceptible difference.
Much like InvalidError says most people wouldn't even notice if they'd been switched to IPv6, most people wouldn't even notice if they'd been switched to NAT.
