This is highly amusing, as for myself and many folks the experience 
of these 'other protocols', when trying to run in open, scalable, 
and commercially-viable deployments, was to encapsulate in IP(v4) 
at the LAN/WAN boundary.  It is no wonder that is the natural reaction
to IPv6 by those who have survived and been successful with such 
operational simplicity.

Cheers,
