It is exactly this sort of 'mandate it and they will come' thinking that IPv6
has relied on since it was rammed through in 1995, over _15 years_ ago - and
we can all see how well it has worked.
If _running out of IPv4 space_ isn't getting ISPs, etc, to deploy native
IPv6, what will? Making 6to4 historic sure isn't going to add much pressure.
If 6to4 has problems, fine, write a document that says something like '6to4
won't work for a host behind a NAT box because the host won't know it's true
IPv4 global-scope address - so you should also not turn 6to4 on by default'
and fix/publicize the issues.
But thinking that changing the standardization level is going to push ISPs
toward providing native IPv6 - give me a break.
