Back a long time ago, in the shrouded mists of yesteryear,
some of us asked "why not just double the address size, left-fill
with zeroes, bump the version number, and rock on?"

The answer, at that time...

That may be the answer you were offered, but the chronology of events
leading to the "selection" of IPv6 is a much darker and IMO uglier
affair. Ask John Currin (ARIN) for an eye-witness account. He's one of
the few whose eyes were not clouded or gouged out. I'll simply say that
IPNG is to IETF what the child in the streets who cried "but he has
nothing on!" was to the Emperor in Hans Christian Andersen's "the
Emperor's New Clothes".
