Yeah, but a counterpoint is that 6to4 works better than nothing at all, which is what
most users have while their providers have native IPv6 disabled - plus as native IPv6
is progressively enabled the use of 6to4 progressively reduces to nothing
automatically. I'll take 'often doesn't work - but seems to work good enough for me'
in the interim over 'guaranteed fail' every day.
