If I remember correctly, you mentioned a bit ago that your job required
you had native IPv6 at home.
Question: Does an ISP providing you IPv6 out of the CPE box (meaning,
without any software other than dual-stack on the hosts) qualify as
native IPv6 if, behind the scenes, they use a tunnel broker, or 6rd?

What is your reading on 6rd numbers? And if these numbers are badly
outdated, where do you place the MacOS IPv6 traffic distribution today?
p3. Recent measurements of hits originating from Mac OS X
hosts on 6to4 prefixed networks are dramatically smaller
than when those measurements were taken, because Apple has
updated Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7 with significantly different
behavior that will avoid using broken or underperforming
So where does the new behavior switch the traffic to,
from 10.6 to 10.7? Back to IPv4? Or some other method?
Maybe Apple is using Teredo? (ducks) :P
[..] the total world IPv6 traffic now, which again is an
embarrassingly small fraction of global Internet traffic.
That is another debate.
