"As easily". It's easier to either hand out /64 by means of 1:1 mapping 
IPv4 and IPv6, or (if ability exists) hand out /48 or /56 using PD, than 
to get into the whole backend mess of having multiple 6RD domains with 
multiple configs per IPv4 subnet etc.

I agree with you theoretically, but in practice I disagree.
