You could, today, setup a IPv6 over IPv4 tunnel and HE will pay for the
IPv4 transit at the cost of a little smaller lower MTU ;)

Just need to find folks on the other side to terminate those tunnels who
find also that using a free service is a good idea for a commercial
setup. I guess all this free IPv6 transit has a perfect SLA of course
with quick resolution for problems and of course a proper clean prefix
feed with properly aggregated prefixes.
