I won't go as far as supporting you on this one. Anything that makes the
network work, good. Anything that breaks the network, bad.
Please consider a new version of 6to4 over HTTPS, with a supplemental DPI layer
to filter unwanted BGP announcements :P
More seriously: if 6to4 is declared historic, someone will hire a brilliant
attorney and file for 1Pv6 as a whole to go historic as well, on the same
grounds: "disable 1Pv6" has become SOP for the script monkeys, and therefore
1Pv6 is detrimental for the Internet as a whole.
Everyone, careful what you are wishing for; the clock to IPv4 exhaustion as
come and gone; it should be clear by now that if shortage of IPv4 was a valid
concern, everyone would be scrambling to deploy 1Pv6 while the last crumbs of
the last /8 given to the RIRs remains.
It is not the case. Warning: fecal matter impact on air turbine predicted.
