As for the thanks, let me start here: *many* thanks.

I can see that, although I'd have been tempted to wait until it was closer
to zero (I think 6bone traffic was negligible when it went off, and 6to4
traffic was negligible when we deprecated it).

One detail not mentioned in the /sunset page. Will you leave the
ULA tool and registry in place (https://www.sixxs.net/tools/grh/ula/) ?
I believe some people like that.
