Who says so? It's anycasted, and operators source from it after making
note of this in the proper routing registries. RIPE NCC would confirm that
AS12859 can source from, just like the other operators 
in RFC3068-MNT can. If anybody marks this prefix as a bogon and filters 
it, that's their absolute right as a network operator. Their customers 
might not appreciate it that much though, if they would like to use 6to4.

I didn't say, type, or even think this.
