I've been told there is a difference between OEM and non-OEM Vista
machines when it comes to Teredo being activated or not.

Yeah, that's been one option as well, prepending 2-3 times to our
peers/transit in the US is probably a good middle way.
Regarding some numbers on 6to4 and Teredo usage, I'd like to point people
to this thread on the ipv6ops IETF list:
If someone has some nice code that'll take a list of IPv6 addresses and
break it down to geographical distribution of native/teredo/6to4, I'd be
more than happy to run it on my data.
