Practical example: my home network would have been on IPv6, although all my addreses would still be written in 4 byte form in my config files. My effort in this: zero. ISP effort in this: close to zero.
Wow, great achievement. How it'll be different from the situation today: if ISP supports either SLAAC or DHCPv6 then your home network will be on IPv6 - the only changes needed are new hardware on ISPs side? It's hard to find contemporary OS without SLAAC (and most support DHCPv6, too), you know.
The problems with IPv6 deployment are not related to problem described in DJB's article. It's simple economics. ISP economics to be exact. Other problems were fixed long ago. May be not in a way DJB likes, but they are fixed.
