IMHO, World IPv6 Day was for the Content Providers and Service Providers.
>From an SP perspective I can tell you that we have learned couple of things
to sort out. We had few test client's but again they knew what they were
testing so there was nothing for end-user and dialing in via tunnel won't
help them understand anything either.

Even than the total IPv6 traffic we were looking at was easily under 10megs
on average except few higher spikes (thanks to youtube).
