This is a red-herring.
a) my service provider isn't IPv6 ready. I am doubtful that any of them
will be for a long time as far as I can tell. I will be building a
tunnels for a long time.
(traceroute to wirespeed.solidum.com if you want to know who my ISP is)
b) in the situation where I am using IPv6 instead of RFC1597, then
my address can't be topologically significant.
