So run IPv6 natively and your tunneling issues are history.

Strange. What I keep hearing is "we can't possibly deploy IPv6 until
it has <insert favorite IPv4 feature>". (And then when that feature
becomes available somehow IPv6 still isn't deployed.)
The simple truth is that IPv6 will be widely deployed as soon as it
reduces cost / increases income / enables features that can't be had
otherwise. The rest is just details which we generally get 80% right,
which makes for an annoying 20% but that's life.
