Yes, ISPs and site network managers who have their hand in the sand
will not see the motivation for this.  But as IPv4 exhaustion begins
to bite over the next 3-5 years, this will probably change when help desk
calls increase. Then the motivation to make 6to4 and Teredo work will
probably decrease as native support increases. Honestly the best way
to kill these mechanisms is to make them unnecessary.

However, for now there is a problem for content providers, I agree.
