The tunnel addresses aren't particularly important, the subnets used
on the meeting lan(s) are.  Hopefully it won't be out of 2001:468::/32, 
which has well known routing issues outside of academia.

Hopefully you are using Merit's own space (2001:48a8::/32), but
I don't see that announced anywhere right now.  If it's really not
being used right now then you would have much better results by 
announcing that /32 from the meeting over whatever decent tunnels
you can set up.  I'm sure there are attendees who could arrange that.
I'd gladly set up a tunnel but there are probably others with v4+v6 pops
closer to Toronto than Ashburn.
