Question Re: best practices

I'm curious about this having read a couple books about the IPv4 -> IPv6 
transition. I would like to know what the current best practice is.

Given: A small set ipv6 only network running various protocols, call 
this the "IPv6 only server network", and a large legacy client IPv4 
network, call this, say, "The Internet".

In this scenario the operator of the ipv6 network may not have the 
luxury of implementing dual stack on the legacy IPv4 network. Given that 
the methodology of providing access to this network via NA(P)T-PT has 
been obsoleted, what is the current best practice for solving this problem?

I'm not really interested in a philosophical sort of "what I think 
should happen" sort of debate, but rather a practical "this is what I 
have implemented in my network" or "this is how I would solve this issue 
given currently available equipment, software, and configurations 

Answers involving proposed but not implemented drafts are interesting 
but not necessarily helpful.

Answers much appreciated.
