A quick thought.  The reasons for IPv6 not being adopted fast enough are 
many and well known.  The benefits of IPv6 are also well known. For the 
paper to add value it should focus on what business and policy 
approaches have and have not worked to encourage take-up.  So look at 
policy driven (for example through procurement), business driven, 
public-private partnerships driven (if any) best practices, etc.  And 
make recommendations based upon learnings to date.   That would allow 
policy makers and businesses to draw value from the product.
