Maybe I'm understanding it wrong, but it appears that this protocol is a tunnelling/encapsulation protocol for transporting low-level packets between base stations and their components. It's not involved with the actual internet connectivity of the mobile phones - in the current 2.5G/3G network structure that happens in a specific component (with even more encapsulation - http://laforge.gnumonks.org/weblog/2009/10/27/#20091027-i...). So these base stations and other parts talking UDPCP will likely have private IPv4 addresses and would not cause a problem for IPv6 migration.
Of course, we'd like to move *everything* to IPv6 in the distant (or not so distant) future. But until then I don't see this IPv4-only implementation posing any problems.
