Do we really need to go through all this again?
As long as there is no Internet Overlord that can command people to
a) put up relays everywhere and b) ensure that these relays are working,
6to4 as a general mechanism for attachment to the IPv6 Internet is FAIL.
If someone wants to use 6to4 to interconnect his machines over an IPv4
infrastructure (=6to4 on both ends), nobody is taking this away.
Less than 1% of the IPv6 traffic reaching us is 6to4. And 6to4 in its
6to4-to-native mode is proven to be highly unreliable. It seems highly
preferable to have that 1% wait for native IPv6 to be available to them, rather
than being used as a reason by the bigger content providers for holding back
production deployment, which is what we all want to see.
It's time to remove the stabilisers on the IPv6 bicycle.
