Re: Comcast's 6to4 Relays

The best way to make 6to4 diminish has always been and still remains:

   Deploy Native IPv6 Now.

That's a plan and a necessity at this point, but, execution is still somewhat lagging.

Of course, Comcast *is* deploying native IPv6; see, for example,
It just takes a while -- and a non-trivial number of zorkmids -- to
do things like replacing all of the non-v6 CPE.

Comcast was not the target of my comment... The networks saying Comcast shouldn't help the rest of the net by providing 
open 6to4 relays were the ones I was referring to.

I again applaud Comcast's leadership on IPv6 to the end user, even if they haven't gotten
it to me yet. ;-)
