I agree with your points and echoed them in my earlier reply.  6to4 is out
there and is likely not to go away any time soon.  Folks should definitely
see what 6to4 relay they default to, you might be surprised (or not).

FWIW - I updated ARIN's wiki for 6to4 relay deployment with some generic
updates.  I will add some more text shortly that folks may find useful if
they decide to deploy their own 6to4 relays.
