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.

I was going to let this go, but after so many responses in the same vein I feel compelled to clarify. *I personally* believe that the answer to 6to4 is to just turn it off. These things have long tails because we insist that they do, not because they have to. *However,* I am realistic enough to know that it isn't going to happen, regardless of how disappointed I may be about that. :)

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

"Hope is not a plan." Meanwhile, my main goal in posting was to make sure that to the extent that you(Comcast) intend to make changes to your 6to4 infrastructure that you take into account the current thinking about that, and I'm very pleased to hear that you have.

best regards,
