Yeah, I disable CONFIG_IPV6, since most American ISP's have started rolling out residential IPv6.  My local pop & pop ILEC hasn't deployed it.  There's not even an announced date for it on their roadmap.

I suspect that if everyone had an IPv6 address, which would be both routable and non-dynamic, then people could more easily run servers on their networks... which might be anethema to the ISP's.
