Your attitude of
the IPv6 standard is so large and hard to get right
having to run dual stack is considerably more expensive and complicated than just running IPv4
suggests you really don't have much experience with IPv6. Yet you're confident that even an idiot could have come up with a simple extension to IPv4 that would have solved the address exhaustion problem and everyone would have enthusiastically adopted it.
If you want to flesh out your proposed IPv4 extensions for how IPv6 "should have been", I'm sure we would have more to debate, but for now I'm going to lump you with the rest of the "I hate upgrades, why can't my vendor make a magic box to fix this for me" crowd.
