Hi David,

> While I happen to agree with you 2002::/16 SHOULD NOT be filtered, and RFC 7526 is quite clear that 2002::/16 is still valid. However, it is perfectly permissible to filter it, if that is the policy a network operator wishes to enforce.

With the 6to4 anycast relays deprecated the only 6to4 traffic should be src 2002::/16 and dst 2002::/16. Sites that are not using 6to4 themselves can filter 2002::/16. Everybody else will only see IPv4+proto41 traffic, which is not impacted by that filter.
