As I noted elsewhere in this thread, this is a plain economics
problem.  There are first-mover costs and few real direct advantages
to moving to IPv6 first, so until "everyone else" is on v6, why move

And as I suggested in that other message, there is something ICANN
could do, but it's probably not something people would be comfortable
with.  They could give out money as a subsidy to encourage v6 adoption.

Best regards,
