I kind of thought that was something that had already been worked out.
Thats what I get for not paying close enough attention.

Now I may be talking crazy...
IIRC, all of IPv4 space maps to a section of IPv6 space.
<mad hat on>
If one has legacy IPv4 space, but actually talks IPv6 couldn't one announce a prefix much longer than a /64 to map them onto the
IPv6 universe (assuming people would allow such craziness... perhaps on their IPv4 speaking routers) and originate/terminate traffic
</mad hat off>
Isn't this all left to the networks to enforce, as usual, but unlike the status quo, these are all valid allocations...
Technical note: I know this breaks lots of IPv6 goodness (no need to enumerate it here).
