6BONE shutdown

I have spoken to several dutch ISPs and think there is a general
consensus to stop accepting and sending IPv6 prefixes from 3ffe::/16
from 6/6/2006. I had some brainfart this weekend and thought it was time
to remove 6BONE from our routing tables, but a collegue slapped me on
the wrist and I turned it back on again :)

AS12859 is planning on tightening BGP filters for all 3ffe::/16
announcements. SixXS is planning on nullrouting 3ffe::/16 on their
tunnelservers (because SixXS does not have routing infrastructure we
chose to do it this way). 

Can any large player(s) share with me and the list their plans on 
dismantling 6BONE transit next month? It would be really good to 
have a large mass of ISPs actively implementing stricter filtering,
especially the IPv6 transit suppliers.
