Your point about folks preferring to do nothing is well taken. This leads me
to two conclusions. First, it is good to remove your 6bone routes because
they are likely not to work, or worse, only work "sometimes." Second, those
who feel that deprecation of the 6bone is a goal should do everything in
their power to dial up the pain for those still sending traffic with those
addresses on 7 June.

If IPv6 is ever going to be considered more than an interesting idea, it has
to start being treated as a production network. As of 7 June, the test is
over. Let's move on.
