I double checked on a regional mailing list.  According to Roman Meyer
of 1&1 they are working to get away from the configured tunnel setup
as soon as possible, but until then the (configured 6in4) tunnel
solution as explained in the howto is still available.

Since I know about the machines Jens is referring to: This isn't
exactly something you do over a weekend.

At least the people I know at 1&1 are well aware of this.

Jens, did you ask through the mail address mentioned in the FAQ or did
you just contact their general support?
