In my opinion, this is a bug. This is the default policy table from a
FreeBSD system, which is the RFC 3484 table IIRC:
Prefix Prec Label Use
::1/128 50 0 0
::/0 40 1 646064
2002::/16 30 2 0
::/96 20 3 0
::ffff:0.0.0.0/96 10 4 0
The last line catches IPv4. It's two steps below the 6to4 prefix.
However, the fact that the label for the 6to4 prefix doesn't match
the ::/0 label means that IPv4 will be used.
This happens on FreeBSD and XP, and I assume also on Vista. But not on
MacOS, because it doesn't implement the policy table. I don't know
about Linux. (If you want to test, try to connect to
6to4test.runningipv6.net and see what happens. Both addresses are
