Fair enough, but IMHO it is aggressive enough to accomplish the design goal.

Gotchya, sure some GUI would be nice ... but "netsh inter ipv6 install" +
SLAAC (+IPv4 DHCP) isn't too bad :)

6to4, ISATAP and Teredo all come along for the ride.  While they may not
have been asked for, the catch there is to make it easier for us poor users
during this "transition" period ("transition in scary quotes because that is
a terrible name ... much better : integration / co-existence).
