Why?

What's the big whoop with ipv6. It's not like your intarwebs are going to go faster. All it will mean is we can't use nat and we will get huge ip addresses. I can wait thanks

You can actually NAT IPv6. The question becomes why.

If you want to communicate with new networks that are using IPv6 exclusively.

What's the big whoop with ipv4. It's not like your interwebs are going to go faster. NAT in the common case is not good. More address space is a good thing. It's about time this is finally rolled out.

Yeah, technically overloading NAT it was added to the Linux kernel. Why someone would use NAT as opposed to prefix translation is beyond me.

They're also asking for a world of hurt as you won't find apps doing NAT punch-through.
