If you are concerned about it being cloudy, i am sure you can figure
it the relative native vs translated traffic pretty easy.

I guess that's for the OP to decide what the purpose of his exercise
is...but he did sound like he was on that path to NAT64/DNS64


The OP said IPv6-only.  And, i assume he wants it to be functional for
something and perhaps approaching production quality (we are beyond
the science experiment phase i hope).  That said, NAT64/DNS64 is what
that solution looks like.  And, NAT64/DNS64 has become quite common in
shops that are serious about IPv6 and having a strategic answer to the
business challenge of IPv4 exhaustion and multi-protocol complexity



The fact is, IPv4 is effectively exhausted from the perspective of
planning any large scale strategic initiative. And, the internet will
soon be composed of IPv4-only, IPv6-only, and DS nodes.    I suggest
folks get used to the idea that IPv4-only nodes and IPv6-only nodes
will need to communicate with each other... Like the IPv6-only mobile
phone talking to the "buy-now button" on the IPv4-only e-commerce
