Note that Randy said 'want my web site seen by both v4 and v6 users', not
'want my client to reach both v4 and v6 sites'.
In all cases I can think of, if you want your web content be available for
both v4/v6 users, you should run it on dual stack at least for now: you
shouldn't have to rely on the the clients being able to perform transport
IP version changes (like with ALG).

a very interesting and probably quite robust approach.
