There is another option, instead of choosing just one - perhaps establish a tunnel to HE from a L3 device that can do the tunneling in hardware?  You can get a HE tunnel for free, and they will speak BGP to you.

Alternatively, if you are on any IXes where HE is present - they will not only peer with you for v6, but announce a full table if you want it.
