I did a basic analysis of a couple of D6 sites I work on to get a sense of the status of modules we're currently using on the two sites and the availability of those modules (or functional replacements) in D7. While a good portion of the D6 modules have D7 versions that are GA release, alpha, beta, or dev releases and in some cases there is either equivalent functionality in another D7 module or in the D7 core, there are still quite a few modules for which there is not an existing migration path. One of the major roadblocks (for us) is the lack of a D7 version of the back_reference and conditional_fields modules.

We have started to build sites in Drupal 7. Our test is whether we
believe that the modules required by the site will be available by the
time the site is scheduled to go live. On sites with a six month to
launch horizon, we feel that most of the "big" pieces will be in place
and we can begin development with dev modules. With a 60 day timeline,
we will stick to D6 unless every module we need is ready for
production now, or we can launch without full functionality.
Exceptions include, on the go side, clients with the resources to take
a module over the hump, if needed, and on the no-go side, sites that
