What "risk"? A tiny percentage of IPv6 connections may not work, out of
the currently tiny percentage of sites on the Internet running IPv6.
This "risk" is being blown completely out of proportion - a classic FUD

It is important to get into IPv6, and if a managed tunnel is needed to
get you there, go for it. It will work, and it will work well.

Yes. At least we agree on that. Geoff was saying the exact opposite.
