This may be off-topic but why do you say that? While it's true that we will still have just as many firewalls as before it should be easier to enable end-to-end connectivity and such connectivity is the default and harder to work around than not doing so.

Universal end-to-end nightmare

This sadly is a good reason *not* to implement ipv6. Security is a problem, and NAT means universal firewalling.

Given how many security problems we have, and how quickly they get fixed ... this is sadly a good thing.
