This is unfortunatly where you are going ENTIRELY wrong. The issue is
something different.

Every Windows XP, Vista, 7 box out, every Mac OS X box, that has IPv6
enabled uses either teredo, when it gets a non-public IPv4 or 6to4, when
it gets a public IPv4, unless it gets a proper IPv6 address assigned
either statically, via router advertisements or via DHCPv6.

This means, that you have 6to4 and teredo traffic on your network
already, if you want it or not.

This has nothing to do with understanding a business or not. That's the
pure and utter fact.

Ever checked your netflows for proto 41 traffic ?
