An IPv4 endpoint is fine and for some situations way cheaper than having every single host be assigned a public IPv4 address. I am not saying that we are there yet, but I can't see a situation where Amazon putting pressure on the market by buying every available IPv4 address resulting in a response of "Let's give all our money to AWS" and not "let's finally make IPv6 happen."

Good point, but the problem is that the companies responsible for "making IPv6 happen" are not necessarily the same companies who want to compete with Amazon. There's very little incentive for ISPs to roll out IPv6, especially when the biggest cloud providers don't support it. It's a bit of a catch 22.
