Are you seriously saying that a single ip address is worth $1125?

Not quite.
If ISP's had moved to IPv6, then all LANs that support IP6 will use IP6. IP6 was created with a heirarchical structure in mind. Something IP4 had, but came too late to be implemented correctly.
The interfaceID part of an IPv6 address is your NIC's MAC address applied. IPv6 almost complete does away with DHCP (ip address, and gateway supplied, no DNS, WINS, etc)
Your computer would grab the network ID, for your subnet, from your router (which got it from the ISP router, which got it from backbone router, etc), then apply its MAC to the end of it. Each interface will have its on unique publicly routeable IP address.
There is no more NAT, and there is no one universally accepeted method of IPv4-IPv6 translation yet.
See sidebar at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6_transition_mechanisms

So
[home]>[IPv4]>[ISP]>[IPv6]>[destination]
Would actually make more sense, with IP translation occuring closer to the destination since someone has to handle and process the conversion.

I don't think your ISP is going to take the time and money set up a v4 to v6 translation for you. However there are services out there you can get yourself set up on if you want to connect to the IPv6 net, using 6in4 or 6over4 translation (or some other one).
Like http://www.sixxs.net/faq/connectivity/?faq=ossetup


IPv4 to IPv6 transistion will be slow but steady. Both versions will (and in many parts of the net, are) running already. Most modern OS's support and will run with IPv4 and IPv6 by default. IP6 will phase in, and IP4 will phase out.
