It should place the time-exceeded message into the tunnel just as
it would do for v4 VPNs and let the egress router take care of deciding
on the proper path back to the source. Which has the "nice" side effect
of all hops of the tunnel seeming to be as far away as the egress
in terms of RTT measurements.

Or are you talking about core routers that do not implement IPv6 at all?
