O Registro.br sim, mas agora estão chegando aos root-servers. Isso
indica que IPv6 realmente terá "futuro".

Ainda, não foi dito nesta notícia, mas em outra que li (esqueci a URL,
envio na sequência), disseram que os dois, v4 e v6, irão coexistir pelos
próximos 20 anos (!!!) até todos os problemas com o IPv6 forem resolvidos.
