This document discusses our experiences from moving a small number of
users to an IPv6-only network, with access to the IPv4-only parts of
the Internet via a NAT64 device.  The document covers practical
experiences as well as roadblocks and opportunities for this type of
a network setup.  The document also makes some recommendations about
where such networks are applicable and what should be taken into
account in the network design.  The document also discusses further
work that is needed to make IPv6-only networking applicable in all
environments.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
