I define that as "not aggressive". (I've seen ISPs rotate addresses (DHCP)  
faster than that.)

Where's the GUI for dealing with it?  It's Windows(tm) after all.

And it brings along a few other things we didn't ask for... a Toredo(?)  
tunnel interface, for one.

But yes, it is functional.  It'll get you to the small assortment of ipv6  
websites around.

Yes, but those things require more than just an IPv6 stack.  Service  
components have to be changed to handle DNSv6 and DHCPv6.
