I see two ways to look at this.
1. almost nobody is using IPv6 yet, so the size of the tables reflect that
2. with IPv6, everybody's address will be provider-independent (or if they aren't, there will be even more of a push for NAT66 so that people can continue to map between their internal addresses that are configured on the servers, and what the outside world sees them as, just in case they ever want to switch providers)
