I am aware of the drafts you cited earlier, as Mikael mentions below the
existence of the same will not result in 6to4 being turned off
automatically or immediately.  This process will likely  take years.

Please note the goal here is not to make 6to4 great, like many others we
hope to see 6to4 use diminish over time.

Another view (one that I personally hold) is that any effort you might

I am all for getting fewer people to use 6to4, especially without them
actually making a decision to use it, but giving more people access to
high quality (I hope they are) 6to4 relays is seldom a downside.

The drafts you mention make special notes that operators should NOT start
to shut down relays, first of all we need to get fewer people to use
THEN we start to remove the relays. Starting at the relay end is bad,
