No, there is plenty of v4 left for now - we easily got another /21 allocated the other day. Google does have v6, facebook too - just not by default. I talked with some of them and other content providers at RIPE meeting in Vienna and will write a further explanaition for their motives to not have it by default on in a few minutes when im at my office.
