So you are suggesting he operate a degraded service instead? 

What I've learned is if its not your forte then move on.

The 6to4 gateway may be the thing holding back native since its there providing glue.

Or do the other thing I said and scale it up with any cast in more areas..

The operators of the ones that are overloaded will ask themselves the same question, and some of them might get the same answer. If they get the same answer, then repeat. At the end, 6to4 basically doesn't work at all.
