And then you'll get fun with looong timeouts due to networks originating
traffic towards 6to4 anycast destinations, but having no route and
traffic being sunk in "discard" style nullroutes, not sending back ICMP

I fear we won't get Jeannie back into the bottle on short term, and
trying to do so will be worse than status quo as net result. So
entertaining the ghosts we called for might be the better approach, even
if it means investing resources to ride a dead horse.
