Microsoft says:
"Unlike the current IPv4-based Internet, which has a mixture of both flat
hierarchical routing, the IPv6-based Internet has been designed from its
foundation to support efficient, hierarchical addressing and routing."

8 byte addresses would provide for more than 4 billion addresses for
each IPv4 address.

If you are in the latter camp, I hope on election day you will
join the "Thy will be done" camp, and vote yes on the marriage
