I was going to let this go, but after so many responses in the same vein 
I feel compelled to clarify. *I personally* believe that the answer to 
6to4 is to just turn it off. These things have long tails because we 
insist that they do, not because they have to. *However,* I am realistic 
enough to know that it isn't going to happen, regardless of how 
disappointed I may be about that. :)

"Hope is not a plan." Meanwhile, my main goal in posting was to make 
sure that to the extent that you(Comcast) intend to make changes to your 
6to4 infrastructure that you take into account the current thinking 
about that, and I'm very pleased to hear that you have.
