Correct.  The network really isn't the hard part.  In a previous life I tried (pretty unsuccessfully I must admit) to get C-level management to understand the impact on internal systems.  Provisioning, monitoring, record keeping, etc etc.  Any system that currently holds a v4 address needs to be modified so it can hold both.

But, as with the network, if new system were built that way over the last 10 years or so then lots of this would have happened before it became urgent.
