Means your NAT/Firewall is not needed/won't work.
Serious security implications. US Universities and other US
establishments have millions of unused IP ver4s. There is a shortage in
Asia of IP ver 4
If you have no problem you don't need it.
Unless most that you connects to uses IPV6, it's hard to see the
benefit. It appears to be an ill thought out replacement to solve only
address space issues without addressing security or IP4 to IP6 migration
