Yes, we are thinking of collecting stats. When interpreting these one
has to take into account that the population visiting this eyechart is
probably going to be very biased ( has a similar issue),
and likely not a good representation of the population of end-users on
the Internet.

Yes, time permitting we'll do that.

Our current idea is to monitor this before, during and a little after
World IPv6 Day, and see if we see any trends. So it is on a more or less
continuous basis. If we find interesting things, that might be a reason
to keep it running for longer of course.
