Thanks Jordi, not to sound too brash but, I'm already doing so.  I am  
trying not to deploy a hacked v6 service which requires an incumbent  
legacy protocol to work.

I would like to support v6 so a native v6 only user can still  
communicate with my network, dns and all, apparently in practice that  
is not easy to do, which is somewhat ironic given all of the v6 push  
lately.  It also seems like the roots are not even fully supporting  
this properly?
