    My comment  on IPv6 not yet ubiquitous.

Granted IPv6 is not yet ubiquitous, however as the many benefits to be
realized with SRv6, operators are pushing fast to upgrade to RFC 5565
softwire mesh framework v4v6 edge over a v6 only core. As operators shift
there core to IPv6 over the next few years BIER x-PMSI MVPN over SRv6 core
will soon be ubiquitous and a reality.  We are not to far off from a
complete paradigm shift from v4 core to ubiquitous v6 core.  This will
happen much sooner then of course the actual proliferation of IPv6 traffic
worldwide which may take a lifetime.  Although with 5G and network slicing
that in itself will be a paradigm shift and also toward IPv6 only mobile
and fixed 5G.
