Like HE is doing?

swmike at uplift:~$ dig +short AAAA
swmike at uplift:~$ ping6 2001:470:64:ffff::d4f7:c88f
PING 2001:470:64:ffff::d4f7:c88f(2001:470:64:ffff::d4f7:c88f) 56 data 
64 bytes from 2001:470:64:ffff::d4f7:c88f: icmp_seq=1 ttl=42 time=316 ms
64 bytes from 2001:470:64:ffff::d4f7:c88f: icmp_seq=2 ttl=42 time=315 ms

Now, pinging myself via DNS64/NAT64 service and getting 315ms RTT means 
the NAT64 isn't very local to me... :P
