what are the other problems that IPv6 solves?

at the time it was designed, there were a lot of things that it did that were not possible in IPv4, but most (if not all) of the features that people really care about have been implemented in IPv4

You are right about many things such as QoS, IPv6, etc.

However, Mobile IP is much better implemented in IPv6 so you don't get inefficient 'triangular routing' - http://www.usipv6.com/ppt/MobileIPv6_tutorial_SanDiegok.pdf

The biggest benefit of course is not having to use NAT for IPv6 traffic.

Yep, that's why people are clamoring for NATv6 ;-) (Just as the idiotic firewalling going on has made everything run over HTTP.)
