It really is not worth it.

The desire to disable IPv4 was to clear out any 'confusion' while 
getting apps working on IPv6. Since this is a mobile project using HIP, 
I plan on using Teredo when on networks not providing native IPv6. So at 
some point IPv4 is needed again.

Just an eye-opener that IPv4 is like, forever. At least right now.

But you now, I remember the fights back in the early '90s to get IP into 
OSs.
